Tuesday’s Factors and Events

U.S. stock index futures posted sharp gains ahead of Tuesday’s open as investors tried to move on from the uncertainty surrounding Turkey’s economic crisis.

Aside from concerns over a tit-for-tat trade dispute between the U.S. and major economies including China, market focus has been mainly fixated by the economic crisis in Turkey.

Ankara’s financial troubles have sparked fear of contagion with the country’s currency having taken a deep slide. The lira has lost more than 45 percent of its value over the course of this year, according to Reuters.
