Review: Futures rose after ECB left interest rates unchanged

U.S. stock index futures rose a little higher on Thursday after investors expressed full readiness to the news release on the economic and political events.

Dow Jones futures grew by 10 points, while S&P and Nasdaq futures indexes up 2 points and 14 points.

The Council of ECB decided to keep interest rates unchanged, what happens for the fifth consecutive quarter. In a statement, the Council announced that it is ready to increase its quantitative easing program if necessary.

American investors will also direct their attention to a testimony by former FBI Director James Comey, who will deliver a speech and answer questions in front of the Senate. It will be his first speech since he was dismissed by President Donald Trump.
