Wall Street shares were expected to open with solid gains on Wednesday, bolstered by a strong performance in Asian and European markets.
Dow Jones industrial average futures were more than 160 points higher, while European markets traded more than 2 percent higher. Asian stocks closed broadly higher, with Japan's Nikkei 225 stock index rallying 2.70 percent.
Oil traded mildly lower, while copper led most metals higher. Glencore continued to recover with a gain of more than 11 percent.
Still, after a quarter which has seen the S&P 500 tumble more than 8 percent, sentiment was expected to remain vulnerable to worries about China's slowing economy, a rout in commodity prices and uncertainty about the timing of U.S. interest rate hikes.
