Dow Futures Drop 34 Points Because Trade Talks With China Have Started

6:43 a.m. Talks between the U.S. and China over trade have begun, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average and other major indexes are starting Monday with a cautious tone.

S&P 500 futures have fallen 0.3%, while Dow Jones Industrial Average futures have declined 34 points, or 0.2%. Nasdaq Composite futures have dropped 0.4%.

Last week ended with the Federal Reserve blinking, and a jobs report that was strong enough to make investors reconsider whether a recession was imminent, helping the Dow finish with a gain. Now talks with China could be the factor that either sends stocks higher, or back to their lows.

Stay tuned.
