U.S. stock index futures were higher on Monday morning, as investors monitor the start of a two-day Federal Reserve policy meeting this week.

At around 02:53 a.m. ET, Dow futures rose 21 points, indicating a positive open of more than 42 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were both seen slightly higher.

The U.S. central bank will begin its meeting on interest rates on Tuesday, which ends with a news conference on Wednesday. The Federal Reserve is expected to lower their interest rate forecasts — or "dot plots" — to show little or no further tightening in 2019.
