Market Snapshot: Wall Street stocks set to fall as Fed, political worries weigh

U.S. stock futures were pointing to a loss Thursday, as some investors saw the Federal Reserve muddling the outlook for the timing of its next interest-rate hike at the close of its policy meeting Wednesday and amid fresh concerns about the new administration’s diplomacy

Investors were also wary of a batch of fresh headlines from President Donald Trump’s administration, including its decision to put Iran “on notice” over potential new sanctions and its testy exchange with the head of one of the U.S.’s best allies and trade partners: Australia and Mexico.
