Futures Put Stocks on Track to Extend Selloff

U.S. stock futures slipped, putting indexes on course for a fifth consecutive day of losses as investors fretted that higher interest rates and soaring inflation were set to weigh on company earnings. 

Futures for the S&P 500 fell 0.8% Tuesday a day after the broad index closed lower for the fourth session in a row. Dow Jones Industrial Average futures also weakened 0.8% while technology-heavy Nasdaq-100 futures fell 0.7%.
