NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. stock futures opened higher on Sunday after the U.S. Senate approved a tax overhaul bill early Saturday.

S&P 500 e-minis EScv1 were up about 0.6 percent, Nasdaq 100 e-minis NQcv1 were also up about 0.6 percent, and Dow e-minis 1YMcv1 up more than 0.7 percent.

The upward movement came after Saturday’s Senate vote, which takes Republicans and President Donald Trump a big step closer to their goal of slashing taxes for businesses.
