Futures pared gains after Atlanta Fed President Dennis Lockhart delivered a speech in which he said a "serious discussion" on raising rates is warranted at the central bank's upcoming meeting.
The sharp plunge in U.S. equities on Friday however was due to concerns that the U.S. Federal Reserve could raise interest rates as soon as this month, following comments made by key officials from the central bank.
Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren said in a speech that low interest rates are increasing the chance of overheating the U.S. economy. Gradually tightening monetary policy is appropriate to maintaining full employment, he added.
Meanwhile, Fed Governor Lael Brainard is expected to give a speech at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs at 1.15 p.m. ET, with the topic expected to be about the economic outlook and on monetary policy implications.
Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari is also due to speak to CNBC on Monday.
While the Fed has given a jolt to markets worldwide, oil is expected to add an extra dampener on markets, with crude futures posting solid losses on Monday.
