U.S. Futures Rise on Optimism Over a Tentative Agreement to Avert a Shutdown #Futures #Shutdown #NFIB

U.S. futures rise on optimism over a tentative agreement to avert a shutdown. U.S. futures rose after reports of a bi-partisan agreement on border security funding which would avoid another partial government shutdown beginning this weekend. The deal only allocates roughly $1.4b for a physical barrier, well below the $5.7b that President Trump was seeking. President Trump has yet to respond to the proposed agreement, so questions remain on whether he would sign such a deal if passed by congress. On the data front, NFIB small business optimism was slightly lower than expectations in January and later this morning investors will get a look job openings and labor turnover from December. European shares are higher, with all sectors trading higher. Asian shares closed higher with Japanese shares leading the region.
