TODAY’s FACTORS AND EVENTS
U.S. stock index futures pointed to a higher open on Friday, following results of the U.K. election, with Theresa May’s Conservative party losing its outright majority in parliament.
E-mini futures for the Dow, Nasdaq and S&P 500 all pointed higher at 7:25 a.m. ET, after news emerged that the U.K.’s snap election had ended in a hung parliament.
With U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May having called for an election earlier this year, her party, the Conservatives, had expected to strengthen their hand in the June 8 election, but have ended up losing a number of seats in parliament, meaning the election has shown no clear majority.
