U.S. stock index futures were slightly higher Tuesday morning, as market participants braced for the first day of the Federal Reserve’s interest rate meeting.
At around 6:00 a.m. ET, Dow futures traded 56 points higher, indicating a positive open of more than 65 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were also seen higher.
Market focus is largely attuned to the U.S. central bank, with policymakers set to begin a two-day meeting later on Tuesday.
The Federal Reserve is expected to leave borrowing costs unchanged, despite fresh demands from President Donald Trump to cut interest rates.
