THURSDAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

U.S. stock index futures pointed to a lower open on Thursday as traders reacted to the Federal Reserve’s latest policy decision and technology stocks slumped for the second time this week.

Dow futures fell 82 points, while S&P and Nasdaq futures declined 15 points and 59 points, respectively. Tech stocks like Facebook, Apple and Amazon all feel at least 1 percent before the bell.

As anticipated, the Fed hiked interest rates by a quarter of a percent, but its weaker-than-expected inflation numbers prompted worry among investors.

 On the data front, Thursday will see a host of data releases, including jobless claims, the Philadelphia Fed manufacturing outlook survey, the Empire State manufacturing survey, and import and export prices. Later in the morning, industrial production figures, the housing market index and natural gas inventories will also be released.
