U.S. stock futures are jumping after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said the central bank would keep supporting the economy. Analysts are expecting a dismal second-quarter earnings season but Alcoa, first out of the gate, beat on both earnings and revenue. Stock index futures rose, putting the S&P 500 on track for its third straight advance in the wake of recent better-than-expected payrolls reports and ahead of the start of earnings season after the close. The benchmark S&P index rose 1 percent in the prior trading session on the strength of the jobs report. Dow component Alcoa Inc kicked off earnings season after the close.
