Stock Futures Waver in Muted Holiday Trading – The Wall Street Journal


U.S. stock futures wavered Thursday in quiet trading on Thanksgiving.

Futures tied to the S&P 500 were largely flat a day after the benchmark stocks gauge closed at its second-highest level on record. Futures for the technology-heavy Nasdaq-100 index edged up 0.3%.

The U.S. stock and government-bond markets were closed for the holiday.

Overseas, most major Asian markets ended the day higher. Japan’s Nikkei 225 rose 0.9% to its highest level since 1991. The Shanghai Composite Index ticked up 0.2%.

The pan-continental Stoxx Europe 600 slipped 0.1%. U.K. equity markets weighed on the broader gauge.
