Stocks Futures Lower On The S&P 500 As We Roll Into Wednesday
by Geoff Garbacz

October 14, 2020

Market Tone: Stocks rebounded nicely last week and yesterday were lower but did not close at the lows of the day. Overnight the S&P 500 rose until 5:00 a.m. EDT and then pulled back before getting back to flat as we published. Earnings season has kicked off and it is a strong start with the reports but the reactions are mixed.
