U.S. futures rise on strong earnings and deal news. The energy sector got a boost after Chevron agreed to acquire Anadarko Petroleum in a $33B deal, while financials are getting a lift after stronger-than-expected quarterly results out of JPMorgan, Wells Fargo and PNC. On the data front, import and export prices were both higher than expected in March, with import prices rising 0.6% and export prices rising 0.7%. European shares are trading higher as euro zone industrial output fell less than expected in February and global optimism rises. Asian shares closed mostly higher as the U.S. and China continue to work out sticking points toward a trade deal.
