1. Wild stocks: It's been a week of absolute shock and awe on global markets. What's next?

U.S. stock futures indicate that markets are poised to rebound Friday following a brutal trading session that saw the Dow lose over 1,000 points.

The Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq have lost between 8% to 9% over the past five trading days, erasing all the gains made in 2018.

Investor concerns about inflation have contributed to the volatility.

The market turmoil follows a prolonged period of booming stock prices with virtually no sharp declines. Market analysts had warned that a pullback was overdue.

2. Global stock markets: After turmoil in the U.S. and Asia, stock markets in Europe managed to find steadier footing.

European markets posted only modest losses in early trading. London's FTSE 100 and Germany's DAX were down about 0.5%.

Things were a lot uglier in Asia, where stocks dropped roughly 2% in Tokyo, 3% in Hong Kong and 4% in Shanghai.

3. Another government shutdown: The U.S. government shut down for the second time in 2018, but it ended quickly.

Congress approved a major budget deal early Friday morning to end the government shutdown and sent the measure to President Trump for his signature.

The colossal bill, which lawmakers had been negotiating for months, is a game-changing piece of legislation. It clears the decks for Congress in dealing with major spending issues as well as doling out disaster relief money and hiking the debt ceiling.

4. Stock market movers -- Nvidia, Expedia: Two of the biggest movers in the U.S. could be Nvidia and Expedia.

Shares in Nvidia are set to surge by about 9% after the company reported better-than-expected earnings on Thursday afternoon.

Shares in Expedia were poised to fall by 19% after the company's earnings missed expectations.

5. Earnings: It's a light day for earnings. PG&E and Moody's are the two key firms reporting results before the opening bell.

6. Walmart looks east?: Walmart could be looking to invest in India's biggest online retailer, Flipkart.

Bloomberg and other news outlets have reported the U.S. retailer is considering investing billions for a minority stake in the company.

Flipkart said it would "not comment on rumors or speculations." Walmart did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
