U.S. Stock Futures Pause After Wall Street Hit Records

04/16/2021 | 01:57am EDT

U.S. stock futures wavered around the flatline a day after Wall Street hit records amid strong earnings reports and economic data.

Futures on the S&P 500 were unchanged and futures tied to the Dow Jones Industrial Average edged up 0.1%. Changes in futures don't necessarily predict market moves after the markets open.

Europe stocks climbed Friday for a four-day run of gains. The Stoxx Europe 600 gained 0.2% in morning trade, and it is at its highest level in a year as gains in communication-services and information-technology sectors were muted by losses in the consumer-discretionary sector.

WH Smith jumped 4.6%.

The U.K.'s FTSE 100 added 0.4%. Other stock indexes in Europe also mostly climbed as France's CAC 40 rose 0.2%, the FTSE 250 climbed 0.3% and Germany's DAX rose 0.2%.

The Swiss franc gained 0.2% against the U.S. dollar, with 1 franc buying $1.09. The euro was flat against the dollar, with 1 euro buying $1.20. The British pound was down 0.4% against the U.S. dollar, with 1 pound buying $1.37.

In commodities, international benchmark Brent crude was up 0.3% to $67.12 a barrel. Gold fell 0.1% to $1,765.40 a troy ounce.

German 10-year bund yields were up to minus 0.264% and the yield on 10-year U.K. government debt known as gilts rose to 0.765%. 10-year U.S. Treasury yields gained to 1.586% from 1.531%. Bond yields move inversely to prices.

Stocks in Asia mostly climbed as Hong Kong's Hang Seng added 0.9%, Japan's Nikkei 225 index climbed 0.1%, and China's benchmark Shanghai Composite added 0.8%.
