Associated Press SHARE

NEW YORK (AP) — Volatile trading on Wall Street is continuing as stock futures recover from a big sell-off at the start of the week.

Dow Jones industrial futures are up 61 points to 14,649. The broader S&P futures have added 8.5 points to 1,574.70. Nasdaq futures are up 17 points to 2,861.

Tuesday will offer investors the first economic indicators of the week.

Economists expect the Conference Board's consumer confidence index for June will decline after reaching its highest point in five years in May.

And economists say that the latest figures from the Commerce Department will show that new home sales rose in May. Commerce is also expected to report a rise in orders for long-lasting manufactured goods.

Durable goods orders can reveal how confident businesses are about the future.
