Economists are predicting that 364,000 Americans filed for first-time unemployment benefits last week, down from 372,000 in the previous seven-day period.

Also before the opening bell, the Bank of England and the European Central Bank will make interest-rate announcements. Those headlines could affect macro sentiment.
