Futures Flatten on Tepid U.S. Data
NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- U.S. stock futures were pointing to a largely flat open Friday as the market weighed better-than-expected May durable goods orders and ongoing efforts to address Greece's debt crisis.
Futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average were up by 1 point, or 2 points below fair value, at 11,977. Futures for the S&P 500 were higher by 2 points, or 1 point above fair value, at 1279, and Nasdaq futures were ahead by 7 points, or 7 points below fair value.
Stocks saw a mixed close Thursday after reports of the approval of Greece's austerity measures helped pare steep losses that were triggered by a surprise release of oil reserves.
