U.S. Stock Futures Edge Up After S&P 500’s Record Close

U.S. stock futures edged up Wednesday, following the S&P 500’s shuffle to a record close, with negotiations stalled for further coronavirus aid and rising tensions between Washington and Beijing.

Futures tied to the S&P 500 ticked up 0.1%. The benchmark stock index’s sharp rally since late March, fueled in part by stimulus measures from the central bank and the government, has erased its historic plunge this year, leaving the S&P 500 up 4.9% for the year.
