Dow Jones futures, along with S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq 100 futures, were little changed ahead of Tuesday’s open in overnight trade, with Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s speech looming on Friday. Meanwhile, tech titan Nvidia stock rebounded from its latest buy point.


The economic calendar is heavy this week, with Thursday’s personal income and outlays for October featuring the Fed’s primary inflation gauge, the PCE price index. Expectations are for a tame reading. Still, measures within the data leave room for a surprise. After a soft retail sales report, the PCE report will show whether spending on services is also moderating.

Further, Fed Chair Jerome Powell will speak at a fireside chat at Spelman College in Atlanta on Friday.

Big earnings reports this week include Dow Jones software giant Salesforce (CRM), along with Intuit (INTU), Pure Storage (PSTG) and Dell Technologies (DELL).

Late Monday, Zscaler (ZS) dived nearly 7% in extended trade after reporting fiscal Q1 results. Shares finished Monday extended from a 177.69 buy point in an ascending base.

Dow Jones Today: Oil Prices, Treasury Yields

Ahead of Tuesday’s opening bell, Dow Jones futures, S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq 100 futures were little changed vs. fair value. Remember that overnight action in Dow Jones futures and elsewhere doesn’t necessarily translate into actual trading in the next regular stock market session.

On Monday, the 10-year U.S. Treasury yield ticked lower to 4.38%. Meanwhile, oil prices dropped, as West Texas Intermediate futures settled below $75 a barrel.
