U.S. stock-index futures fell in volatile trading Thursday evening, following a late rally that sent stocks closing higher during the regular trading session despite market jitters caused by the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Crude prices continued to rise after rising above $100 a barrel during intraday trading for the first time since 2014. West Texas Intermediate crude for April delivery
was last at $95 a barrel, while April Brent crude
the global benchmark, was at $101 a barrel.
Earlier in the day, the Dow
snapped a five-session losing streak, closing up 92.07 points, or 0.3%, at 33,223.83, after falling as far as 2.6% in morning trading. The S&P 500
climbed 63.2 points, or 1.5%, finishing at 4,288.70, but in correction territory, while the Nasdaq Composite
rose 436.1 points, or 3.3%, ending at 13,473.59, but bouncing off a session low at 12,587.88.
