NEW YORK (Agefi-Dow Jones)--Les contrats à terme sur les principaux indices américains évoluent peu mardi en préouverture, les investisseurs restant en marge du marché après la forte hausse enregistrée lundi en réaction à des indicateurs encourageants sur l'activité manufacturière en Chine et aux Etats-Unis.

Vers 14h00, les contrats à terme sur les indices Dow Jones, S&P 500 étaient quasiment inchangés, tout comme celui sur le Nasdaq 100.

"Les opérateurs sont de plus en plus convaincus que les deux premières économies mondiales commencent à se stabiliser, comme l'attestent les données récemment publiées", indique Jasper Lawler, responsable de l'analyse chez London Capital Group.


-Kellogg est inchangé en préouverture, après l'annonce lundi soir de la cession des biscuits Keebler ainsi que d'autres marques de snacks du spécialiste américain des céréales de petit-déjeuner au groupe italien Ferrero pour un montant de 1,3 milliard de dollars en numéraire.

-Dow Inc. remplacera mardi DowDupont à la Bourse de New York. Le groupe américain de chimie a finalisé la première phase de sa séparation en trois entités, avec la scission de la branche spécialisée dans les sciences des matériaux, Dow Inc.

-L'action Walgreens Boots Alliance chute de 6,3% en préouverture, après une révision à la baisse des prévisions de résultats de la chaîne de pharmacies.


Les investisseurs surveilleront les chiffres des commandes de biens durables en février à 14h30.

Stock-index futures were little changed Tuesday, with investors on the sidelines a day after a strong rally inspired by upbeat manufacturing data out of China and the U.S.

What are major indexes doing?

Futures on the Dow Jones Industrial Average were up 5 points, or less than 0.1%, at 26,263, while S&P 500 futures edged up 1.75 points, or 0.1%, to 2,872. Nasdaq-100 futures were up 3 points, or less than 0.1%, to 7,501.50.

What's driving the market?

Investors appeared to be taking a breather after a Monday rally ( that saw the Dow rally 301 points, or 1.2%, while the S&P 500 rose 1.1% and the Nasdaq gained 1.2%. Stocks got off to a strong start after a purchasing managers index reading for China pointed to the first expansion in activity ( in the country's manufacturing sector in four months, which was followed by a stronger-than-expected reading ( for the Institute for Supply Management's U.S. manufacturing index.

Investors will look ahead to data on February durable-goods orders due at 8:30 a.m. Eastern. Economists surveyed by MarketWatch look for a 2.1% fall after a 0.3% rise in January.

Investors are also keeping an eye on the Treasury market. A closely watched measure of the yield curve -- the spread between yields on 10-year Treasury notes and 3-month Treasury bills -- turned negative, or inverted, on March 22. Such an inversion is viewed as a reliable warning of a potential recession a year or more in the future.

A subsequent retreat by Treasurys, however, has seen yields at the long end rise in recent sessions, moving the curve out of inversion. Yields rise as bond prices fall.

What shares are in focus?

Shares of Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. (WBA) were off more than 6% after the pharmacy chain reported second-quarter results.

What are analysts saying?

"Traders are growing increasingly optimistic that the world's two largest economies are starting to stabilize, amid better recent data prints. Yields on 10-year bonds have now gained considerably since their inversion just a week or so go," said Jasper Lawler, head of research at London Capital Group, in a note.
