U.S. stock futures little changed after Trump orders coronavirus relief
U.S. stock index futures were mixed late Sunday, after President Donald Trump on Saturday issued executive orders on coronavirus aid that were quickly dismissed by Democrats and some Republican lawmakers. As of midnight Eastern, Dow Jones Industrial Average futures were up about 70 points, or 0.3%, while S&P 500 futures rose 0.2% and Nasdaq-100 futures dipped slightly. Stocks were mixed on Friday, while the Dow gained 3.8% for the week, its biggest percent gain since June 5. The S&P 500 rose 2.5% for its biggest weekly percent climb since July 2; while the Nasdaq climbed 2.5%. Trump issued orders Saturday aimed at boosting the economy, but many lawmakers and experts said they were neither feasible nor legal. Meanwhile, earnings season is winding down, with just 13 S&P 500 companies and one Dow component scheduled to release quarterly earnings this week.

Overnight, prices caught up to Monday's divergent delta after disappointing earnings reports from Europe and a sharp rebuke from China. Tuesday's U.S. session managed to get past the uninspiring news, closing higher and validating the breakout from balance.Indices continued their trek higher Wednesday, closing and establishing value above prior balance on upbeat economic data and positive earnings. Pre-U.S. open, on Thursday, the S&P filled a prior gap, finding liquidity at the $3,300 strike before climbing higher, on p
