S&P 500 futures climbed, hinting that the US stock benchmark is set for a relief rally at the end of its worst week since March 2020, which saw it enter a bear market amid growing fears of a recession.

Contracts on the S&P 500 were up 1.1% as of 7:32 a.m. in New York after the underlying gauge erased $2 trillion in market capitalization this week so far. Nasdaq 100 futures rose 1.4% and Dow Jones futures gained 0.8%.
