U.S. stock futures were mixed on Friday at the end of a week that saw stocks on Wall Street climb to record closes multiple times.
S&P 500 futures were flat and futures tied to the Dow Jones Industrial Average were up 0.1%. Nasdaq-100 futures slipped 0.3%. Changes in futures don’t necessarily predict market moves after the opening bell.
In Europe, the Stoxx Europe 600 was lower 0.1% in morning trade as gains in consumer-discretionary and materials sectors were muted by losses in information-technology and communication-services sectors.
The FTSE 100 traded mostly flat and shed 0.1%. Other stock indexes in Europe were mixed as the U.K.’s FTSE 250 added 0.1%, whereas France’s CAC 40 was broadly flat and Germany’s DAX lost 0.2%.
The euro and the British pound were down 0.1% and 0.3% respectively against the U.S. dollar. Meanwhile, the Swiss franc was flat against the dollar, with 1 franc buying $1.08.
