U.S. stock index futures are pointing to a lower open on Wall Street Thursday as investors continue to worry about the spread of the coronavirus and look ahead to a slew of earnings.
Around 5 a.m. ET, Dow futures indicated the average would drop nearly 200 points at the open, while futures on the S&P 500 and Nasdaq were also lower.
Investors continue to monitor news on the coronavirus outbreak, with China's National Health Commission delaying the daily tally of new cases of the virus and death toll for a second day running. Figures published on Wednesday showed the nationwide death toll in the country from the coronavirus outbreak topped 1,100 as of Tuesday night.
