Wall Street: Futures Fade

Early indications from U.S. futures prices suggest a modestly stronger open on Wall Street Monday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average set to rise around 17 points, or 0.1%, at the opening bell and the S&P 500 likely to gain 1.75 points, or 0.07%, at the start of trading.

The dollar index, a measure of the greenback's strength against a basket of its global peers, traded modestly higher in Asia but remains welded near six-month lows of 97.35 as investors continue to worry about political developments in the United States and wonder what the next headline may reveal with respect to the ongoing investigations into ties between Russian officials, President Trump's electoral campaign and the White House.
