Futures mixed in very light trading

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) -- U.S stock futures are mixed in very light trading, with many investors head to the sidelines before the Fed's policy statement next week.

There are jobs and deficit numbers due Thursday.

Dow Jones industrial futures are down 9 points to 15,321. S&P futures have lost 1.4 points to 1,687.40. Nasdaq futures are up 1.25 points to 3,179.75.

Economists expect that the Labor Department will report an uptick last week in the number of people seeking unemployment benefits, though figures remain near five-year lows.

The Treasury is expected to report that the U.S. deficit shrank noticeably last month.

Yet with less than a week before the U.S. Federal Reserve releases its monthly statement and projections, most of the chatter on Wall Street is about what direction the Fed will take.
