U.S. stock index futures were slightly higher on Tuesday.
At around 03:40 a.m., Dow futures rose 24 points, indicating a positive open of more than 34 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were both marginally higher.
Market focus is largely attuned to global trade developments, following President Donald Trump’s decision to impose steel and aluminum tariffs on imports from Brazil and Argentina.
The U.S. president suggested the move was necessary because Brazil and Argentina had been “presiding over a massive devaluation of their currencies.”
