Futures point to quiet open with S&P at record

NEW YORK, Feb 18 (Reuters) – U.S. stock index futures
pointed to a very slightly lower open on Wednesday, a day after
the S&P 500 ended above 2,100 for the first time, as investors
waited to see whether a debt deal would be reached with Greece.

Wall Street stocks have been tied to signs of progress or
difficulty with Greece’s bailout program of late, even though
the United States has little direct exposure to the country.
Market participants are concerned that if a deal isn’t reached
by Feb. 28, when a bailout program for Greece expires, increased
volatility could spread through the euro zone.

Wall St flat, paring losses on Greece hopes

NEW YORK, Feb 17 (Reuters) – U.S. stocks were flat on
Tuesday, paring modest early losses and putting the S&P 500 back
near record levels as optimism grew that a debt deal would be
reached with Greece.

A source told Reuters that Greece intends to ask for an
extension of a loan agreement tomorrow. The report follows a
collapse of deal negotiations on Monday, which led to European
Union finance ministers pressuring the country to remain in an
international financial rescue program.
U.S.-listed shares of the National Bank of Greece fell
8.7 percent to $1.47.

Wall St edges lower amid overseas issues; energy falls

debt deal and a fragile Ukraine truce.

advance came on signs of progress for the debt deal in Greece,
