S&P 500 futures ESU7, -0.14% inched down by 2.35 points, or 0.1%, to 2,422.25, while Dow Jones Industrial Average futures YMU7, -0.03% edged lower by 18 points, or 0.1%, to 21,341.00. Nasdaq-100 futures NQU7, -0.21% gave up 8.75 points, or 0.2%, to 5,685.25.

“Forex and equities markets seem to have entered into another bout of wait-and-see trading as the moves of recent days begin to settle down,” said Richard Perry, a Hantec Markets analyst, in a note.
