US stock futures higher after Greek bailout deal

US stock futures advance after Europe puts together deal for Greek bailout; Dow nears 13,000 By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' U.S. stock futures are higher after Europe finally put together a bailout for Greece.

Dow Jones industrial average futures are up 36 points at 12,965. The Dow is within sight of 13,000, a level it hasn't crossed since May 2008, before the worst of the financial crisis.

Standard & Poor's 500 futures are up two points at 1,362. Nasdaq composite index futures are up three points at 2,585.



The countries that use the euro stitched together a $170 billion bailout for Greece, which is struggling with crushing debt. The deal is designed to prevent a catastrophic Greek default, but Europe's long-term debt problems are far from over.

European markets are modestly lower.

A strong earnings report from Home Depot could also help U.S. stocks Tuesday.
