U.S. stock index futures traded lower in the premarket Wednesday morning after President Donald Trump delivered his second State of the Union address.
At around 6 a.m. ET, Dow futures indicated a negative open of more than 70 points. Futures for both the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq were also trading lower.
Markets focused on Trump's address Tuesday as he vowed to build a wall that's the source of a deep partisan divide. Democrats did not yield to Trump's demand to fund the barrier, leading to a 35-day partial government shutdown during December and January.
