S&P 500 Futures to trade overnight ahead of NYSE Wednesday close

The Wednesday futures session will begin as usual at 6 pm on Tuesday in New York, and go until 9:30 am the following day, according to a statement by CME Group

New York/Chicago: Futures on US equities will trade overnight Tuesday in a truncated session before the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) closes Wednesday for a national day of mourning for the funeral of George H.W. Bush.

The Wednesday futures session will begin as usual at 6 pm on Tuesday in New York, and go until 9:30 am the following day, according to a statement by CME Group, the world’s largest derivatives exchange. Futures trading will resume at 6 pm, as regularly scheduled.

Volume is likely to be light, but for a market whose volatility has spiked lately on headlines surrounding global trade and monetary policy, the shortened morning opening is a venue for investors to express views.

The S&P 500 fell 0.6% as of 10:30 am in New York as optimism over a US-China trade truce faded. The index rallied more than 6% over the previous six days as traders cheered a perceived soft tone toward interest rates by Chairman Jerome Powell and easing trade tensions.
