U.S. Stock Futures and Global Indexes Decline


Updated Oct. 6, 2021 3:40 am ET

U.S. stock futures fell, suggesting Wall Street indexes will pull back from the prior day’s rally in an extension of the week’s volatile trading.

Futures on the S&P 500 were down 0.7% and futures tied to the Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 0.6%. Changes in futures don’t necessarily predict moves after the markets open.

In Europe, the Stoxx Europe 600 shed 1.1% in morning trade dragged down by declines in healthcare and real-estate sectors.

The U.K.’s FTSE 100, which is dominated by large international businesses, was lower 0.9%. Other stock indexes in Europe also mostly fell as France’s CAC 40 lost 1.3%, the U.K.’s FTSE 250 was down 0.7% and Germany’s DAX fell 1.2%.

The Swiss franc, the euro and the British pound slipped 0.1%, 0.2% and 0.4% respectively against the dollar.

In commodities, Brent crude was up 0.6% to $83.07 a barrel. Gold was down 0.7% to $1,748.80 a troy ounce.

German 10-year bund yields gained to minus 0.150% and the yield on U.K. 10-year gilts rose to 1.143%. 10-year U.S. Treasury yields strengthened to 1.566% from 1.528%. Bond prices and yields move in opposite directions.

Stocks in Asia mostly fell as Hong Kong’s Hang Seng shed 0.6% after trading higher 0.6% during the session and Japan’s Nikkei 225 index lost 1.1% after gaining 1.4% earlier.
