Global stocks jump on Greek debt plan, U.S. dollar falls

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Stock markets around the world rallied on Tuesday while the U.S. dollar fell after the new Greek government dropped calls for a write-down of its foreign debt, easing concerns about growing instability in the euro zone.

The government, led by the left-wing Syriza party that won elections just over a week ago, on Monday ditched calls for a reduction of foreign debt and proposed ending a standoff with its official creditors by swapping the debt for new growth-linked bonds.

Futures point to modest gains at the open

NEW YORK, Feb 2 (Reuters) – U.S. stock index futures pointed
to slight gains at the open on Monday, suggesting a modest
rebound following a decline last week, though a disappointing
reading on consumer spending added to recent concerns over
economic strength.

U.S. crude futures rose 0.9 percent after earlier
jumping 4.8 percent, a rise that suggested the beaten-down
commodity was in a strong uptrend following a jump of 8.3
percent on Friday. Oil remains down more than 50 percent from a
recent high in June.
