U.S. Stock Futures Rise; Dow at Record High

graphU.S. stock futures are pointing higher for Monday and Asian and European stock markets have advanced despite ongoing geopolitical tensions in eastern Ukraine after pro-Russian separatists declared victory in a one question vote about self-rule and autonomy from Kiev.

The Dow Jones closed at a record high on Friday and the S & P 50o edged near its all time high in a volatile week that saw Fed Chair Janet Yellen speak about Fed policy on Capitol Hill.

On Monday Chinese stocks rallied after Beijing agreed to move forward with market reforms, including a move to soften their limits on foreign investment and increasing quotas for capital flows.

There is no major economic data on deck for Monday in the United States.
