US stock futures mixed as US and European financial leaders meet; big jobs report ahead
NEW YORK (AP) ¯¯¯ U.S. stock futures are mixed as Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner meets with economic policy makers in Europe. New data out of Europe suggests a tricky path to recovery.
Dow Jones industrial futures are down 15 points to 13,018 and the broader S&P futures are down 2.9 points to 1,379.60. Nasdaq futures are up 0.75 points at 2,642.75.
The European Commission released a report Monday showing that economic sentiment dipped, with pessimism growing in both the industrial and service sectors. There were sharp declines in Germany, France and in Spain. The report was released on the same day that Spain's National Statistics Institute said that its economy contracted for the third straight quarter.
Geithner is meeting his German counterpart and the head of the European Central Bank on Monday.
