U.S. stocks are little-changed this morning as traders try to decide whether the market will extend a two-day winning streak or resume its earlier downtrend.
Equity futures had been moving higher overnight but pulled back as concerns rose over claims of chemical weapons in Syria. S&P 500 futures are down 0.14 percent, while Nasdaq 100 futures just went fractionally negative.
European stocks are mixed, with France’s CAC down about 0.5 percent, Germany’s DAX off 0.2 percent, and the U.K. FTSE up 0.7 percent. China led gains in Asia overnight, as the Shanghai Composite surged 1.9 percent and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng rose 0.65 percent. Japan’s Nikkei was down 0.2 percent.
