Market Snapshot: Dow set to stabilize after shedding 540 points in 2 days

U.S. stock futures were rising modestly Wednesday, putting the Dow on track to recover somewhat from a two-day drop in which it shed 540 points, or 2%.

Strategists said President Donald Trump’s relatively unsurprising State of the Union address could be helping the investing mood, as traders brace for a Federal Reserve statement, more earnings reports and a raft of economic data.

What are the main benchmarks doing?

Dow Jones Industrial Average futures YMH8, +0.24% gained 82 points, or 0.3%, to 26,137, while S&P 500 futures ESH8, +0.20% added 8.75 points, or 0.3%, to 2,833.25.
