U.S. stock futures gained on Tuesday with market participants eyeing monthly durable goods order and housing data. At last check, futures on Dow Jones Industrial Average Index added 0.19%; those on NASDAQ 100 Index gained 0.39% while futures on S&P 500 Index advanced 0.23% On Monday, all leading benchmark indexes in the U.S. ended lower after the initial euphoria arising due to last-minute Cypriot bailout deal faded later during the day.  The Dutch finance minister, Jeroen Dijsselbloem, hinted that Cyprus bailout, which demands hefty penalty on uninsured bank deposits, could act as precedent for future financial rescues in the euro zone, denting the sentiment.
