Futures signal US stock gains on hopes for Europe

NEW YORK (AP) - Wall Street is poised for a higher opening, even as differences between officials in Europe dim the prospects of a deal to save the euro at this week's summit of European leaders.

Overseas investors had been optimistic that EU leaders would agree Friday on a strategy that will allow the 17 countries that use the euro to link up their economies more closely. But those hopes were dimmed somewhat when a German official cast doubt on any agreement for a far-reaching deal at the summit.

Stocks in Germany and London gave up earlier gains, while the CAC 40 in France remained higher.
