Stock futures continue to indicate early gains for the broad stock market, following Europe's advance and a sharp drop in the dollar as the Federal Reserve on Wednesday delivered on its pledge for an aggressive bond-buying program meant to inject new life in a flagging economic recovery.

The DJIA closed at September 2008 levels Wednesday. London's FTSE 100 index is trading at its highest level in over two years today. Both the Bank of England and the European Central Bank hold their respective monetary policies unchanged.

Stock futures retain solid gains even as a report shows a 20,000-person jump in weekly jobless benefits claims after recent declines. Economists predicted a slightly smaller gain.
