In financial trading Sunday evening, Dow Jones index futures jumped about 200 points ahead of Monday's stock market opening, apparently in response to FBI Director James Comey's decision that seemed to lift a cloud over Hillary Clinton.

Comey announced Sunday that a review of new Hillary Clinton emails did not change the FBI's recommendation that she should not face charges.

The futures jump Sunday presaged possible substantial gains. The market wilted on Oct. 28 after the FBI notified Congress that it was reviewing new, potentially relevant emails linked to Clinton. The stock market is allergic to that kind of uncertainty coming so close to Election Day.
