Tech stocks poised to drive another record day on Wall Street, led by Facebook


After forecasting-beating Facebook results, investors wait for Twitter to report

Technology names looked set to lead the way higher for U.S. stocks on Thursday, with Nasdaq-100 futures posting strong gains as Facebook Inc. shares soared after upbeat results. An update on durable goods orders will vie for attention with another influx of earnings, with Twitter Inc. and Dow Chemical Co. among those due ahead of the bell. Futures indicated U.S. stock markets are likely to hold at the record levels reached in the prior session. Dow Jones Industrial Average futures YMU7, +0.11%  rose 31 points, or 0.1%, to 21,676, while S&P 500 futures ESU7, +0.17%  gained 3.95 points, or 0.1%, to 2,477.25. Nasdaq-100 futures NQU7, +0.50%  jumped 29 points, or 0.5%, to 5,976.75.
