UPDATE: U.S. stock futures bounce around as Senate approves outbreak-aid bill
U.S. stock index futures bounced around in volatile trading late Wednesday, but picked up steam after the Senate approved a $2 trillion coronavirus-aid bill (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/mcconnell-predicts-passage-today-of-coronavirus-aid-bill-in-senate-2020-03-25) just before midnight. Dow Jones Industrial Average futures were up 44 points, or 0.1%, as of midnight Eastern, after swinging up and down a range of about 200 points earlier. S&P 500 and Nasdaq-100 futures were about flat. Earlier Wednesday, the Dow logged its first back-to-back gains since February (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/dow-futures-give-up-early-gains-and-turn-negative-after-lawmakers-agree-to-2-trillion-coronavirus-package-2020-03-25), though stocks fell toward the end of the session as a roadblock emerged concerning the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/mcconnell-predicts-passage-today-of-coronavirus-aid-bill-in-senate-2020-03-25) in the Senate.
