U.S. stock futures gained ahead of weekly jobless figures, suggesting the S&P 500 could add to its string of records.

Futures for the broad index rose 0.3% and futures tied to the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 0.4%. Changes in equity futures don’t necessarily predict market moves after the opening bell.

In Europe, the Stoxx Europe 600 climbed 0.8% in morning trade with the materials and energy sectors leading gains.

Fresnillo PLC jumped 2.4% snapping a losing streak of more than a week.

The U.K.’s FTSE 100 added 0.9%. Other stock indexes in Europe also mostly climbed as France’s CAC 40 added 0.8%, the U.K.’s FTSE 250 climbed 0.8% and Germany’s DAX gained 0.6%.
