U.S. stock futures were pointing to a slightly lower open on Wall Street, a day after the Dow and S&P 500 both set record closing highs even in the wake of new doubts about a U.S.-China trade deal. The Dow has not lost ground in five sessions while the S&P 500 has risen in five of the past six sessions. The Nasdaq did fall yesterday, putting it in jeopardy of posting the first back-to-back losses for any of the major stock measures in over a month. (CNBC)
