U.S. stock futures are stable after Trump ordered coronavirus relief



U.S. stock index futures were little changed late on Sunday after President Donald Trump issued executive orders on coronavirus aid on Saturday that were quickly rejected by Democrats and some Republican lawmakers. From 10pm Eastern Futures, Dow Jones Industrial Average
YM00,
+ 0.26%

rose slightly, while S&P 500 futures
ES00,
+ 0.1

4%

and Nasdaq-100 futures
NQ00,
-0.09%

slightly dipped. Shares were mixed on Friday while the Dow
DJIA,
+ 0.17%

earned 3.8% for the week, its largest percentage increase since June 5. The S&P 500
SPX,
+ 0.06%

increased 2.5% for its largest weekly percentage growth since July 2; while the Nasdaq

was up by 2.5%. Trump issued orders on Saturday aimed at boosting the economy, but many lawmakers and experts said they were neither feasible nor legal. Meanwhile, the earnings season is winding down with just 13 S&P 500 companies and a Dow component scheduled to release quarterly earnings this week.
