U.S. stock futures pointing lower, jobless claims awaited
There is little action going on Tuesday regarding the trading session, but data on the labor market and geopolitical tensions could keep investors occupied for the day.
Weekly jobless claims are due at 8:30 a.m. and are seen dipping by 2,000 to 300,000 in the latest week.
The most recent read on the labor market, last week`s August payroll report, came in much weaker than expected. While this was a bearish sign for economic growth, it was also taken as a sign that the Federal Reserve may hold off on raising interest rates soon.
U.S. stock futures pointed at a lower open. European shares were mainly lower in early trading, while Asian markets closed with losses but the Nikkei, which rose 0.76%.
-Futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.264% to 17013
-Futures on the S&P 500 index fell 0.291% to 1989.20
-Futures on the NASDAQ 100 fell 0.214% to 4084.25 . As of 07:43 a.m. ET
Benchmark indices ended higher on Wednesday, despite recent action that sent stocks lower for five of the past seven sessions.
However, the S&P 500 is only 0.6% away from an all-time high hit last week.
Geopolitical tensions may resurface again after U.S. President Barack Obama said he had authorized U.S. air strikes in both Syria and Iraq as a part of a broad campaign against ISIS.
While investors have barely created any impact on markets from geopolitical tensions in Iraq, worries remain that any impact on the region’s oil supply could have a major toll on commodity space.
U.S. crude oil futures dropped 1.2% to $90.60 per barrel. October Brent fell 1.13% to $96.93 per barrel.
