December E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are trading higher at the mid-session after clawing back earlier losses. There is no clear trend in today’s session. Traders have been primarily reacting to the headlines. After an early session rally, the index fell to its low for the session following the release of weaker-than-expected manufacturing data from the Euro Zone, which raised concerns over the weakening global economy. The index recovered enough to turn higher for the session after a U.S. manufacturing report came in better-than-expected.

At 16:52, GMT, December E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are trading 7852.25, up 21.50 or +0.27%.
