U.S. stock index futures traded slightly higher on Tuesday morning, broadly supported on expectations the Federal Reserve could strike a dovish tone later in the session.
At around 3:35 a.m. ET, Dow futures were up 28 points, pointing to a higher open of more than 48 points. Futures on the S&P 500 and Nasdaq were also slightly higher.
Market focus is largely attuned to central bank expectations, with the Fed due to kick-off its two-day policy meeting on Tuesday.
