European indices closed yesterday with modest gains but not before a late dip towards the closing stages. The more tepid tones in US equities isn't helping the mood, although futures are pointing to a mixed picture ahead of the Fed.
S&P 500 futures are down 0.2% while Nasdaq futures are up 0.4% currently.
Outside of the FOMC meeting today, there's a couple of big earnings releases in the form of Apple, Tesla, Boeing, and Facebook later in the day.
