U.S. stock index futures pointed to a negative open on Wednesday, as investors awaited fresh data while taking note of the declines seen in markets overseas.
Dow Jones industrial average futures fell 42 points, while S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures declined 2.75 points and 20.25 points, respectively.
In the previous session, U.S. equities finished in the red as the broader market failed to be boosted by an uptick in tech stocks. The S&P 500 also posted its first three-day losing streak since August.
Looking to today's session, on the data front, the ADP National Employment report showed private payrolls grew by 190,000 jobs last month, more than expected.
Productivity and costs data are due at 8:30 a.m. ET. The figures come two days before the U.S. nonfarm payrolls data for November, due out on Friday.
