Stock futures are little changed after S&P 500 ekes out winning day

Stock futures saw little change on Thursday after a choppy regular trading session with the S&P 500 ended up slightly in the green.

Futures on the S&P 500 were just below the flatline. Dow Jones Industrial Average Futures lost 3 points. Nasdaq 100 futures trade on the flatline.

The S&P 500 posted a two-day losing streak in Thursday’s regular trading session, while the Dow ended its third straight day in red.

After volatile trading, the S&P 500 closed 0.1% higher. The Nasdaq Composite added 0.1%. Against the trend, the Dow lost 66.57 points.

All three major stock indices are on track to close lower for the week. The S&P 500 and the Dow are both well on their way to seeing their worst weekly performance since June, while the Nasdaq is set to see its worst week since May.
