Traders on the floor of the NYSE, Aug. 9, 2022. Source: NYSE U.S. stock futures fell on Monday morning following a halt in the summer rally last week, as fears of aggressive interest rate hikes returned to Wall Street. Dow Jones Industrial Average futures slid by 136 points, or 0.4%. S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures dipped 0.41% and 0.49%, respectively. On Friday, the S&P 500 closed down 1.29%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 292 points, or 0.86%, and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 2.01%. Those moves come ahead of what could be a volatile week of trading on Wall Street. Investors are anticipating Fed Chairman Jerome Powell's latest comments on inflation at the central bank's annual Jackson Hole economic symposium. "We've written a couple of times recently about wait and see trading ahead of key events/releases... and how that can set the stage for greater volatility around the events themselves, and we may see a bit of that play out next week as investors await the symposium," read a Friday note from Susquehanna's Christopher Jacobson. On the earnings front, traders are expecting Palo Alto Networks and Zoom Video to report results Monday after the bell.
