 U.S. stock futures rose 5percent in a straight line


The U.S. stimulus package continues to stick in the Senate, with Democrats dissatisfied with the extent of federal aid to big businesses and the ease with which they can get it. At present, the scale of the program has been expanded to $2 trillion.
