"Stock futures fell sharply on Monday before posting a stunning reversal, indicating a higher when Wall Street begins trading as world policymakers race to contain the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic.
Unprecedented levels of volatility and an economy in free-fall prompted the Federal Reserve to announce a broad new, open-ended effort to calm markets, which will include buying unlimited amounts of government and investment grade corporate debt.
