The S&P 500 Futures are posting a rebound after they suffered the worst sell-off since March 16, as investors were concerned about resurgence in coronavirus infections and discouraged by the Federal Reserve's warning of a slower economic recovery.
Later today, the U.S. Labor Department will release May import price index (+0.7% on month expected). The University of Michigan will publish its Consumer Sentiment Index for June (75.0 expected).

Asian indices closed in the red except the Chinese CSI. New Zealand's Business NZ Manufacturing PMI bounced to 39.7 in May from 25.9 in April.
