Tech stocks lead market rally as Salesforce predicts strong earnings

Stock market futures rose on Friday ahead of key economic data, with the AI stock soaring into the buy zone. Investors are monitoring data on job growth and the unemployment rate, which could provide insights into the strength of the economic recovery. Meanwhile, the stock market rallied as Salesforce’s 11% gain lifted the Dow, while the S&P and Nasdaq reversed early losses. Dow futures were also up ahead of services data, but Bitcoin fell. Despite the promising start to the day, some investors are questioning why stocks were down earlier in the week. The S&P 500 is trying to snap a three-week losing streak, and market experts say it remains to be seen whether this is a temporary fluctuation or a sign of underlying market weakness.
