U.S. Stock Futures Tick Lower to Start the Week

U.S. stock futures edged down to start the week ahead of another batch of earnings reports from major corporations.
S&P 500 futures fell 0.1% and futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average slipped 0.2%. Changes in futures don’t necessarily predict movements after the opening bell.
Europe stocks climbed Monday for a five-day winning streak. The Stoxx Europe 600 rose 0.2% in morning trade, and it is at its highest level in a year as gains in the communication-services and information-technology sectors were tempered by losses in the industrials and real-estate sectors.
The U.K.’s FTSE 100 was largely flat. Other stock indexes in Europe also mostly climbed as France’s CAC 40 gained 0.2%, the U.K.’s FTSE 250 added 0.2% and Germany’s DAX gained 0.2%.
The Swiss franc, the euro and the British pound strengthened 0.1%, 0.3% and 0.2% respectively against the U.S. dollar.
