Dow futures point to a lower open as trade, political concerns linger

U.S. stock index futures were lower Monday morning, as investors monitored trade talks and political developments.

At around 1:45 a.m. ET, Dow futures slipped 31 points, indicating a negative open of more than 32 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were also seen relatively downbeat.

On Friday, Wall Street closed lower on the back of concerns over the ongoing trade war and slower economic growth concerns. The sentiment has continued onto Monday, ahead of further trade meetings between the U.S. and the Chinese administrations later this week. Time is running out ahead of the self-imposed deadlines of March 2. Failure to reach an agreement will raise U.S. tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese to 25 percent from 10 percent.
