Before the bell: Stock futures gain, copper sharply higher

The Before the Bell report is constantly updated to reflect the latest news developments and market moves in the premarket. Check back later for updates.

U.S. and Canadian stock futures are higher this morning, as Monday's downturn in equity markets is once again being met by buying interest.

U.S. stock futures are up about half a percentage point, and have been gaining steady strength ahead of the opening bell. European stocks are having an even stronger morning, with gains of about 1 per cent, rebounding from their biggest drop in two weeks on Monday.
