Interest rates will regain central attention on Wednesday as U.S. economic data and the release of the FOMC meeting minutes shed further light on when tightening might occur.

"I think the biggest thing is the minutes of the Fed meeting," said Randy Frederick, managing director of trading and derivatives at Charles Schwab. He said the "safest thing is to stay away from (the Greece situation)."

Another important data point released on Wednesday is industrial production for January at 9:15 a.m.. Analysts polled by Reuters expect the key capacity utilization rate, which measures slack in a firm, to edge up slightly from December to 79.9 percent.
