American stock futures pause at record peaks

American stock futures pause at record peaks

On Friday, Wall Street futures actually pointed to a flat to lower start because American equities were brace for taking another breather at record peaks, with the Nasdaq reportedly intending to break a 10-day winning streak, which is its best outcome since February 2015. It’s because market participants are ready to price in big moves on earnings. They’re also awaiting a bunch of outcomes next week.

The blue-chip Dow futures declined 0.13%, the S&P 500 futures tumbled 0.05%, and the tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 futures sagged 0.13%.

With no key economic reports set for publication on Friday, investors paid attention to the ongoing flow of quarterly earnings, especially the outcomes of three Dow Jones components.

Visa Inc looked braced for leading the blue-chip index higher because equities reported profits of almost 2% in pre-market trade Friday right after the credit card company raised its earnings forecast because revenues beat estimates.
