US index futures hint at a weak opening on Wall Street

FXStreet (Mumbai) - The equity futures in the US declined as investors await evidence, in the form of macro data, that the economy can sustain a withdrawal in stimulus.

The DJIA December futures are trading lower by 0.19% at 17,253 levels, while the S&P December futures are trading 0.25% down at 2006.15. Meanwhile, the Midcap index Russell 2000 December futures are trading 0.35% lower at 1162.00.

Earnings reports may provide further clues to the health of the U.S. economy. Prudential Financial Inc., 21st Century Fox Inc., and Walt Disney Co. are among the S&P 500 companies posting financial results this week.
