U.S. stock futures signaled a drop at the open Thursday, as analysts blamed the selling on the Trump administration saying it's considering more than doubling its proposed tariffs on Chinese goods.
S&P 500 futures fell 0.3% to 2,802.50, Dow Jones Industrial Average futures shed 0.3% to 25,202, and Nasdaq-100 futures gave up 0.4% to 7,245.75.
The White House has "upped the game," said Naeem Aslam, chief market analyst at ThinkMarkets, in a note. "The trade tensions are making investors risk-averse today," he added, as European and Asian equity markets showed losses for the session.
