Stock Futures Pause Ahead of Fed Decision

U.S. stock futures hovered Wednesday as investors awaited the conclusion of the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy meeting and a raft of economic data.

Futures tied to the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average each edged down 0.1% Wednesday, while technology-heavy Nasdaq-100 futures were flat. On Tuesday, the Dow closed above 36000 for the first time, while the other two indexes also set record highs.
