U.S. stock index futures pointed to a lower open on Monday, as investors geared up for a slew of corporate earnings, while continuing to digest the latest remarks from Federal Reserve Chair, Janet Yellen.
Amid discussion around the upcoming U.S. election and fluctuation in the oil price, the Fed has been placed back on the table in recent trading sessions, as investors debate whether the central bank will raise interest rates this year or next.
Last week, Yellen said the economy had seen an unusual tendency of weak demand against strong supply, making it reasonable "to ask whether it might be possible to reverse these adverse supply-side effects by temporarily running a 'high-pressure economy', with robust aggregate demand and a tight labor market."
Going forward, Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer is expected to deliver remarks at the Economic Club of New York on Monday.
Big corporate names are expected to shake up sentiment on Wall Street, as they release their latest financial results with IBM and Netflix all set to report Monday. Bank of America posted better-than-expected earnings and revenues, sending its stock higher by nearly 2 percent before the bell. Hasbro also reported better-than-expected results.
On the data front, investors will be looking out for the Empire State survey, due out at 8.30 a.m. ET, and industrial production figures, expected at 9.15 a.m. ET.
