U.S. equity futures are firmer, bouncing back from Tuesday's meltdown, after China reported the trade meeting was "very successful" and promised to push on with negotiations. The futures market will close at 9:30 ET, and cash markets, along with Treasuries, will be closed today for the day of morning for former president Bush. The 3.24% plunge in the S&P 500 dragged shares lower in Asia and Europe, with China's Shanghai closing 0.61% lower, with the Nikkei off 0.5%. The FTSE is leading European bourses lower, sliding 1.1%, as Brexit uncertainties add to the mix. However, risks of a no-deal crash-out scenario are being priced out after a parliamentary vote on a motion that would change the process in the event that the Prime Minister May's deal is voted down. Also weighing was the unexpectedly large drop in the UK November services PMI, which dove to a 28-month low of 50.4 from October's 52.2.
