Dow futures slightly lower ahead of Fed Chair Powell's testimony

U.S. stock index futures were slightly lower Wednesday morning, as market participants eagerly anticipated comments from the world™s most powerful central banker.

At around 05:30 a.m. ET, Dow futures slipped 40 points, indicating a negative open of more than 41 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were both seen slightly lower.

Market focus is largely attuned to the testimony of Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, with investors anxious to learn whether he will confirm or confound expectations for U.S. policy easing this month.

Over the next two days, Powell is expected to talk about slowing economic activity and increased risks ” showing that the Fed is ready to cut interest rates as needed.
