Futures pointing higher after previous day's rout

NEW YORK (AP) — Stock futures are rebounding after a triple-digit sell-off on the Dow, with U.S. markets paying close attention to central bank actions overseas.

Also on Thursday, the U.S. government releases data on weekly unemployment benefit claims, productivity and the trade deficit.

Dow Jones industrial futures are up 40 points to 14,676. S&P futures have added 4.4 points to 1,581.70. Nasdaq futures are up 8.75 points to 2,872.25.
