U.S. stock index futures were slightly higher Thursday morning. At around 03:45 a.m. ET, Dow futures rose 36 points, indicating a positive open of more than 67 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were both slightly higher.
Market focus is largely attuned to the Federal Reserve's central banking meeting in Jackson Hole, Wyoming over the next two days.
Policymakers at the U.S. central bank are scheduled to deliver remarks from Thursday, after weeks of limited public appearances. Philadelphia Fed President Patrick Harker and Dallas Fed President Robert Kaplan are both set to comment on the world's largest economy later in the session.
The Fed's closely-watched annual meeting comes shortly after the central bank published its latest meeting minutes on Wednesday.
