December E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are expected to open higher on Monday as investors cheered what appeared to be improvements in President Donald Trump’s health and the prospect that he may be discharged from Walter Reed hospital later in the session.
White House chief of staff Mark Meadows told NBC News Monday that, “The discharge decision will be made later today between the president and his medical team.”
At 13:27 GMT, December E-mini Dow Industrial Average futures are trading 27753, up 188 or +0.68%.
Trump’s illness, as well as a weak September jobs report, highlighted the urgency for further coronavirus stimulus after a months-long stalemate in Washington. Optimism for reaching a compromise rose over the weekend after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi signaled progress on Friday, saying “we continue to work on the text to move more quickly to facilitate an agreement.”
