U.S. stock index futures pointed to a slightly higher start on Tuesday, building on gains which took markets to fresh record highs in the previous session.
At 4 a.m. ET, Dow futures were up 12 points, pointing to a higher open of more than 8 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were higher too. Trading is expected to be subdued on Tuesday as many financial markets will close early for the Christmas holidays.
On Monday, the three major averages all posted record closes. Shares of Boeing led the gains, jumping 2.9% after the company ousted CEO Dennis Muilenburg amid the 737 Max crisis.
