U.S. stock futures on Monday pointed to a lower open, putting the equity market on track to add to its two-week losing streak.
"There have been signs that markets are struggling to sustain themselves at these levels," said Craig Erlam, senior market analyst at Oanda, in a note.
S&P 500 futures pulled back by 1.40 points, or 0.1%, to 2,125.50, while Dow Jones Industrial Average futures shed 16 points, or 0.1%, to 18,043. Nasdaq-100 futures lost 8.25 points, or 0.2%, to 4,796.
On Friday, the S&P 500 and Dow both closed slightly higher, but finished near their session lows and notched a second straight weekly loss.
"We saw some late selling in equity markets on Friday, with the FTSE, Dow and S&P all experiencing a late dash for the exit into the close, potentially indicating an anxiety among traders and a lack of confidence in the markets," Erlam said.
