U.S. stock-index futures extended gains after orders for durable goods topped economists forecasts last month, tempering concern that the economy was weakening.
Futures on the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index expiring in December rose 0.8 percent to 1,234 at 8:32 a.m. in New York.
Orders for U.S. durable goods excluding transportation equipment rose in September by the most in six months, showing manufacturing is supporting the expansion. Demand for goods meant to last at least three years, outside of airplanes and automobiles, climbed 1.7 percent, exceeding the median forecast of economists surveyed by Bloomberg News that called for a 0.4 percent increase.
