Dow Jones industrial average futures are up 19 points at 12,869. Standard & Poor's 500 index futures are up two at 1,377. And futures for the Nasdaq 100 are ahead almost 10 points.
A loss on Tuesday would give the Dow its longest losing streak of the year. It has declined about 330 points in four trading sessions. Monday's loss came as investors reacted to weak job growth in March.
