Thursday’s Factors and Events
U.S. stock index futures indicated a flat open on Thursday as Wall Street looked to trade negotiations with Canada and awaited key economic data.
Officials from the U.S. and Canada worked late into the night on Wednesday, as both sides sought to secure a new trade agreement to replace the current North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) pact, a deal they failed to secure by last Friday’s initial deadline. These extended talks are likely to continue in the coming days, and could potentially last weeks.
