U.S. stock index futures came under pressure ahead of Friday's open.
Around 5:05 a.m. ET, Dow futures fell 29 points, indicating a lower open of -19.48 points. Futures on the S&P 500 were indicating a slightly lower open of -2.51 points, while Nasdaq futures signaled a downbeat open of -24.00 points. U.S. futures were seen extending the losses posted in the previous session, and on the back of negative sentiment overseas on Friday.
Investors continued to show signs of jitteriness Friday, as rising interest rates weighed on sentiment. On Thursday, the yield on the 10-year Treasury note notched its highest level in over seven years, following positive economic data released this week. Comments from Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell also pushed yields higher.
