Stock futures will trade on an abbreviated schedule, until 1 p.m. ET.

The S&P 500 fell 16.25 points, or 0.4%, to 4,409.59 after wobbling through the day.

FED OFFICIALS SIGNAL RATES MAY NEED TO GO HIGHER TO FIGHT INFLATION

It may be just a momentary pause as the central bank warned that it could raise rates twice more this year. 

The next Fed meeting will be July 25-26, and Wall Street is betting that it will raise rates. 

The Fed had raised interest rates at 10 straight meetings since March 2022. Its goal has been to slow the economy to cool inflation but not so much that it causes a recession.
