Futures point to flat open, major indexes at records

NEW YORK, Feb 17 (Reuters) – U.S. stock index futures
pointed to a quiet open on Tuesday, the first trading session
after the S&P 500 closed at a record high, although investors
continued to watch the uncertainty over a Greek debt deal and a
fragile Ukraine truce.

Equities have been in an uptrend lately, with major indexes
notching a second week of solid gains last week. Much of the
advance came on signs of progress for the debt deal in Greece,
as well as reduced tension between Russia and Ukraine.
