U.S. Stock Futures Edge Up to Start the Week – The Wall Street Journal

U.S. stock futures inched higher ahead of Monday’s opening bell, suggesting the S&P 500 could reach another record.

S&P 500 futures were up 0.1% and futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average strengthened 0.1%. The contracts don’t necessarily predict moves after the markets open.

In Europe, the Stoxx Europe 600 traded mostly flat in morning trade as gains in healthcare and consumer staples sectors were balanced by losses in materials and energy sectors.

Ipsen slipped 2.2%.

The U.K.’s FTSE 100 was down 0.2%. Other stock indexes in Europe were mixed as Germany’s DAX and France’s CAC 40 were largely flat, whereas the U.K.’s FTSE 250 shed 0.2%.
