U.S. stock futures pulled back on Monday, after having closed the prior week near records.
Futures on the S&P 500 slipped 0.3% and futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average were down 0.2%. Changes in futures don’t necessarily predict moves after the opening bell.
In Europe, the Stoxx Europe 600 was lower 0.2% in morning trade as gains in communication services and information technology sectors were offset by losses in healthcare and consumer discretionary sectors.
The U.K.’s FTSE 100 meandered after the flat line. Other stock indexes in Europe mostly fell as France’s CAC 40 was down 0.2% and Germany’s DAX shed 0.3%.
The Swiss franc, the euro and the British pound depreciated 0.1%, 0.2% and 0.2% respectively against the U.S. dollar.
