U.S. stock index futures were mixed Wednesday morning, with market participants monitoring the latest round of trade talks between the world's two largest economies.
At around 3:00 a.m. ET, Dow Jones Industrial Average futures were 19 points lower, indicating a negative open of more than 21 points. Futures on the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite were both seen little changed from the previous session.
Market focus is largely attuned to global trade developments, after officials from the U.S. and China launched a new round of negotiations on Tuesday.
A follow-up session of higher-level talks is expected later in the week, as both sides look to resolve the long-running trade war before an early March deadline.
