    US stocks advanced, seeking their first daily gain this week, as oversold banking and energy shares recover, tracking the rise in Oil and European shares.

    At the time of writing, the Dow futures were up 157 points or 1.00%. The S&P 500 futures were up 18 points or 1%. Meanwhile, the tech-heavy Nasdaq futures were up 1.00% as well.

    Shares in JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs were up 5.5% and 2.35% respectively. Banking stocks are witnessing correction, tracking the sharp rally in Deutsche Bank after the German lender offered to buy more than $5 billion in bonds.
