Elsewhere, earnings season continues to run hot today, with Procter & Gamble Co (NYSE:PG) and Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) among the major firms releasing quarterly numbers. On the economic calendar, new home sales data is due out at 10 a.m. ET.
Futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDEXDJX:.DJI) are nearly 32 points below fair value.
