U.S. stock index futures were slightly lower Thursday morning, after market participants reacted cautiously to mixed economic data from China.
At around 03:30 a.m. ET, Dow futures slipped 53 points, indicating a negative open of more than 14 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were both seen little changed from the previous session.
Market focus is largely attuned to economic developments, after data showed China's industrial output expanded at its slowest rate in 17 years.
The data comes as investors monitor clues about the health of China's economy, after growth cooled to 6.6 percent last year.
