Futures rising to end a volatile week for markets


NEW YORK (AP) — Stock futures are rising after a volatile week in which major U.S. averages set record highs.

Dow Jones industrial futures are up 46 points to 15,523. S&P futures have gained 3.5 points to 1,754 50. Nasdaq futures are up 10.25 points to 3,379.25.

Even with consecutive days of losses after the U.S. Federal Reserve said that the economy is still struggling, it appeared Friday that the week will end in positive territory.

The Institute for Supply Management will release its report on U.S. manufacturing activity in October. Economists fear that the 16-day partial government shutdown slowed activity in the sector, and they're projecting a decline for the index to 55.1 from 56.2 in the previous month.

The automakers are also releasing auto sales figures for October.
