FRIDAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

U.S. stock index futures were lower Friday morning, with market participants increasingly worried about a broadening global economic slowdown.

Market focus is largely attuned to global trade developments, after President Donald Trump said he did not plan to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping before a March 1 deadline to reach a deal.

Trump’s stance rattled investors hoping for a positive resolution to a long-running trade dispute between the world’s two largest economies.

While Trump and Xi are still expected to meet eventually, there’s too much work to do to flesh out a deal with China and prepare Trump for a high-stakes meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un. Trump’s summit with Kim is set for Feb. 27-28.
