Wall Street futures go down on American government shutdown

Wall Street futures go down on American government shutdown

On Monday, Wall Street stock futures along with the evergreen buck pulled back a bit after the American authorities had to shut down amid a fierce dispute between Democrats and Donald Trump over immigration.

However, Asian equities were still resilient, while American bond yields keep soaring because market participants saw minor economic fallout from the standoff in Washington.

European stock futures are generally starting higher. Dax futures added 0.2%, while France's CAC headed north 0.05%. In Great Britain FTSE declined 0.1%.

MSCI's index of Asia-Pacific equities erased modest losses just to eke out revenues of 0.15%, reaching a record maximum for six days in a row. As for Japan's Nikkei, it gained 0.03 point.

American S&P500 mini futures slumped 0.1%, still keeping to a record maximum reached on Friday.

Meanwhile, US Treasuries yields have managed to inch up notwithstanding the government shutdown, contributing to their long-lasting ascend since September.
