Stock Futures Mixed After US Default Averted

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) - Stock futures are mixed after huge rally that followed an eleventh-hour deal to avert a default on U.S. debt.
    
Dow Jones industrial futures are down 33 points to 15,216. S&P futures have lost 1.9 points to 1,711.30. Nasdaq futures are up a half point to 3,264.50.
    
The deal reached in Congress Wednesday only allows the Treasury to borrow money through Feb. 7.
    
The Labor Department is expected to issue a weekly unemployment benefits report Thursday.
    
Economists forecast that applications fell sharply last week to a seasonally adjusted 342,000, according to a survey by FactSet. That would be down from 374,000 the previous week.
    
It's also a big day for corporate earnings, with UnitedHealth, Goldman Sachs, Verizon, Chipotle and Google reporting.
