Dow Jumps More Than 300 Points

Stock futures rose ahead of Friday’s session following a report that ceasefire talks could be gaining traction between Russia and Ukraine.

Reuters sent a brief report quoting Russian President Vladimir Putin saying that “certain positive shifts” have occurred in the talks.

The report coincided with a sharp acceleration in stock futures, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average futures up more than 300 points and the Nasdaq 100 jumping some 1.4%.

The moves came despite another day of higher energy prices as the Russia-Ukraine war showed little signs of letting up. West Texas Intermediate crude, the U.S. benchmark, rose 2.5% to $108.66 while international standard Brent crude moved 2.5% higher to $112.08.

3. Of course it will recover

... as soon as greed overcomes fear. I don't think it would take much of a rise to trigger a boom -- the speculators will fear they're gonna miss out.

2. Let me guess

Trump called Putin and told him that if he helped him win the coming election he would eliminate NATO and help him get Ukraine and the Baltics. Crazy talk I know but would we put it past him?
