Stock futures little changed
During overnight trading on Tuesday, U.S. stock index futures were mostly neutral following the Dow

Nasdaq 100 futures also traded slightly lower.

Composite fell 0.34%. Apple had the most unfavorable time on the tech-heavy index, tumbling 1.6%.

low, and so you have the wind to your back,” stated Scott Black, founder and president at Delphi
