Dow futures add 200 points as Brexit polls turn

U.S. stock index futures futures indicated a higher open Monday as global markets rallied on polls that showed the remain camp making gains ahead of Britain's EU referendum later this week.

The Dow was set to make triple-digit gains after two opinion polls released over the weekend showed those wanting to stay in the European Union holding a slim majority against the leave campaign. Dow futures were up about 200 points, while S&P and Nasdaq futures advanced 23 points and 57 points, respectively.
