NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. stock index futures ticked lower on Tuesday, with investors taking a pause following a rally that has taken major indexes to repeated records, although a sharp decline in crude oil could weigh on energy shares.

* Both the Dow and S&P 500 inched up to intraday records in Monday’s session, but the indexes ended the day with slight losses. The quiet session followed the Dow’s biggest weekly gain since January 2013 and the S&P’s biggest two-week jump since December 2011.

Dow, S&P 500 hit records in quiet session

NEW YORK, Nov 3 (Reuters) – U.S. stocks were little changed
on Monday, with investors mostly taking a pause following a
sharp rally on Friday, but both the S&P 500 and the Dow inched
up to intraday records, while strength in semiconductors boosted
the Nasdaq.

Equities have been strong of late, with the Dow last week
posting its biggest weekly gain since January 2013 and the S&P
coming off its biggest two-week jump since December 2011. The
gains have largely come on the back of strong quarterly results,
which have eased concerns over how corporations are faring in an
uncertain growth environment, as well as stimulative actions
from central banks.

NEW YORK (Reuters) – A handful of toss-up U.S. Senate races next week could hold the key to whether the stock market glides through the year-end in a typical post-midterm election rally or gets hit with a fresh bout of volatility.

U.S. investors appear less concerned with whether Republicans take control of the Senate, as expected, or Democrats hang on to their majority by a slim margin. They just want to know – come Wednesday morning – the actual outcome.
