Markets rebound as investors took solace in emergency stimulus by China’s government

U.S. stock futures rebounded as investors took solace in emergency stimulus by China’s government, speculating it would calm two weeks of volatility in global markets spurred by the coronavirus outbreak.

Stellar results from Apple Inc., and Amazon.com Inc. last week could do nothing to cushion markets and equities ended with back-to-back weekly losses for the first time since October.
