U.S. stock index futures pointed to a slightly weaker open Wednesday, as investors await the minutes release from the latest Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting.
Dow Jones industrial average futures slipped 15 points, while S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures declined 3.25 points and 7.75 points, respectively.
At 2 p.m. ET on Wednesday, the latest minutes from last month's FOMC meeting will be published. While the U.S. central bank left its benchmark interest rate unchanged in September, the Fed did take its first steps towards unwinding its economic stimulus.
