Dow Futures Slide 130 Pts as Investors Await Big Tech Earnings
U.S. stock futures were pointing to a slightly lower open on Wall Street on Tuesday as investors awaited high profile earnings from some big tech names which should give insight into the health of the economy.
At 06:54 ET (10:54 GMT), the Dow futures contract was down 130 points, or 0.4%, S&P 500 futures traded 13 points, or 0.3%, lower, and Nasdaq 100 futures edged down 0.1%.
The main U.S. indices rose broadly on Monday after data showing that U.S. business activity contracted for a fourth straight month raised hopes that the effects of the Federal Reserve’s aggressive rate hikes aimed at cooling the economy are beginning to take hold, which in turn raised hopes that the central bank could begin slowing the pace of the hikes.
Third quarter earnings season is due to ramp up this week with a slew of heavy-hitting tech and industrial companies reporting.
Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) and Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) are both due to report on Tuesday, followed by Meta Platforms (NASDAQ:META) on Wednesday. Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) will wrap up the FAANGs on Thursday.
