Market Watch: Will June’s Slow Start Continue?


U.S. stock futures were close to even Tuesday, following another disappointing day for equities on Monday.

Monday’s session pushed the Dow Jones Average into the red for 2015, and continued what’s becoming a troubling string of losses on the market. 10 of the last 14 sessions have seen the major indices end lower than they started.

Greece continues to remain at the forefront of the market’s worries. Some Euro Zone creditors favor extending the country’s bailout program into March of next year, while others are wary of extending their good nature in light of the repeated requests the country has made for extensions.

Domestically, rising bond yields remain a concern as next week’s statements from Federal Reserve policymakers loom over Wall Street. The bond market continued to take most of the headlines on Tuesday , with equities largely unmoved for the trading day.

Here are the final numbers from Tuesday on Wall Street:

Dow Jones Industrial Average: 17,764.04 (-2.51)

NASDAQ: 5,013.87 (-7.76)

S&P 500: 2,080.15 (+0.87)
