Futures tied to the S&P 500 gained over 1%, suggesting that the broad market benchmark may climb after the New York opening bell. Dow Jones Industrial Average futures edged 0.4% higher. The blue-chips index notched a new intraday record on Monday.

Futures linked to the Nasdaq-100 rallied 1.8% Tuesday, indicating that technology shares are likely to rebound. The tech-heavy index and the broader Nasdaq Composite Index both fell into correction territory Monday, meaning that the gauges have declined more than 10% from recent highs.
