U.S. stock futures pointed to a small decline at the open Monday, setting the S&P 500 on course for a third losing session in a row, a sign the market is still absorbing the recent bruising from some disappointing earnings.
Dow Jones Industrial Average futures slipped by 17 points, or 0.1%, to 25,397, while S&P 500 futures shed 3.50 points, or 0.1%, to 2,814. Nasdaq-100 futures dipped by 7.25 points, or 0.1%, to 7,294.
On Friday, the Dow, S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite closed lower, with the Dow snapping a three-day winning streak, while the S&P and Nasdaq both fell for a second-straight session.
With two days left in July, the three gauges are showing healthy gains for the month. The S&P is up 3.7% for the month to date, representing its largest such rise since January, while the Dow and Nasdaq are higher by 4.9% and 3%, respectively.
