Friday’s Factors and Events

U.S. stock index futures were lower on Friday, amid escalating concerns about a global economic slowdown.

At around 6:45 a.m. ET, Dow Jones Industrial Average futures slipped 103 points, indicating a drop of 107.23 points at the open. Futures on the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 were both seen slightly lower.

Market focus is largely attuned to economic data, after shockingly weak export figures from China exacerbated concerns about a global economic downturn.

The world’s second-largest economy reported on Friday that exports in February slumped 20.7 percent from a year earlier, far below analyst expectations and wiping out a surprise jump in January.
