Futures flat ahead of busy news day; Wal-Mart results on tap

|By:, SA News Editor

Stock index futures hug the flatline ahead of a bid day of economic news including CPI and Philly Fed, capped by a Janet Yellen speech scheduled for tonight. Wal-Mart reports its quarterly results before the bell. Cisco is up 6% premarket after beating estimates after yesterday's close.

Europe's edging lower and the Nikkei and Shanghai slipped overnight following a weak day in the States.

Maybe the most interesting action of late is the Treasury market, and the 10-year yield is flat in early action after tumbling all the way down to 2.54% yesterday. Gold is lower by $2 per ounce to $1,304.
