    U.S. stock futures edged down ahead of a week that will include the first wave of major corporate earnings reports of the year.

    S&P 500 futures and Dow Jones Industrial Average futures were down 0.2%. The contracts don’t necessarily predict movements after the opening bell.

    In Europe, the Stoxx Europe 600 fell 0.5% in morning trade as gains in financials and energy sectors were muted by losses in real estate and information technology sectors.

    The Swiss franc and the euro lost 0.2% and 0.1% respectively against the dollar whereas the British pound was flat against the U.S. dollar, with 1 pound buying $1.36.

    In commodities, international benchmark Brent crude was up 0.4% to $82.09 a barrel. Gold was down 0.3% to $1,792.00 a troy ounce.

    German 10-year bund yields strengthened to minus 0.028% and the 10-year U.K. government debt known as gilts yield was up to 1.196%. Bond yields and prices move inversely.

    Stocks in Asia climbed as Hong Kong’s Hang Seng added 1.1% and China’s benchmark Shanghai Composite rose 0.4%.
