U.S. stock-index futures mostly pointed to a drop at the open Thursday, led lower by Facebook Inc.’s big premarket fall after its disappointing quarterly report.
S&P 500 futures lost 4.80 points, or 0.2%, to 2,836.50, while those for the tech-heavy Nasdaq-100 shed 61.25 points, or 0.8%, to 7,408.25.
Futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average, which doesn’t have Facebook as one of its components, bucked the negative trend, rising by 38 points, or 0.2%, to 25,441.
On Wednesday, the Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite finished higher, rallying into the close after President Donald Trump and European Union chief Jean-Claude Juncker made a deal on trade.
The three gauges are showing year-to-date advances of 2.8% to 15%, as of Wednesday’s close.
