Futures Indicate a Flat Open on Wall Street

EQUITIES
Stock futures across Europe are mixed, with France's CAC-40 modestly outperforming, but countered by weakness across Spanish and Italian equities. US futures are largely, indicating an uneventful open on Wall Street later today. The S&P E-Minis trend condition remains bearish and price once again traded lower yesterday. The contract has recently cleared the 50-day EMA. This reinforces the bearish theme and signals scope for a continuation lower.
