U.S. stock futures were slipping on Monday, as Treasury yields resumed a move higher and investors waited for another big week of earnings to get underway, with Halliburton Co. coming ahead of the open.
The market is also looking ahead to results later this week from major technology companies — Google parent Alphabet Inc., Facebook Inc. and Twitter Inc. — following losses for the sector in recent sessions.
Dow Jones Industrial Average futures lost 33 points, or 0.2%, to 24,397, while S&P 500 index futures fell 2.1 points to 2,669.75. Nasdaq-100 futures eased 5.25 points to 6,671.25.
Stocks finished lower on Friday, pulled down by weakness for technology and consumer staples shares, though the major indexes still posted weekly gains.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 201.95 points, or 0.8%, to 24,462.94, but still ended the week up 0.4%. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 declined 0.9% to 2,670.14, but also rose 0.4% over the week. The Nasdaq Composite Index dropped 1.3% to 7,146.13, but gained 0.5% for the week.
