Market Snapshot: U.S. stocks stuck in waiting game ahead of Trump’s news conference

U.S. stock futures traded flat early Tuesday, a sign the market is cooling down ahead of a much anticipated midweek news conference by President-elect Donald Trump.

Dow Jones Industrial Average futures YMH7, +0.03% slipped 4 points to 19,824, while S&P 500 futures ESH7, +0.03% fell 0.5 point to 2,264.50. Nasdaq-100 futures NQH7, +0.05% traded flat at 5,022.

The Nasdaq Composite COMP, +0.19% finished at a record high for the second session in a row on Monday, adding 10.76 points to 5,531.82.

But the other main indexes pulled back amid new-year caution that has taken hold of some investors who have been pushing up stocks on the prospect that Trump’s policies will stimulate economic growth.
