Stocks were set for a lower open after the Chinese stock market fell for a second straight day.
Futures on the
Dow Jones Industrial Average
dropped 90 points, or 0.3%, while
futures fell 0.2% and
futures were little changed.
This comes after Chinese equities sold off, with the
Index down 2.5% and the
Index down 4.2%. Harsh regulation from the Chinese government and uneasy talks about trade and other issues with the U.S. are partly to blame for the declines, but some also say the spread of the Covid-19 Delta variant in China is adding to the selling.
“Futures are modestly lower again for the same reasons as Monday: Global equity pressure following another sharp decline in Chinese shares,” writes Tom Essaye, founder of Sevens Report Research.
Here are five stocks making moves in Tuesday’s premarket action:
