December E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are trading lower at the mid-session after hitting another record high earlier in the session. The tech-weighted index was supported shortly after the cash market opening by strong gains in Tesla and Meta Platforms, however, profit-takers hit the market as many investors took to the sidelines ahead of the Federal Reserve’s potential move to start paring pandemic-era support for the world’s largest economy.
At 17:52 GMT, December E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are at 15815.25, down 23.25 or -0.15%.
In stock-related news, Tesla Inc rose 4.6% to a record high after it notched a trillion dollars in market capitalization last week, while Meta Platforms, formerly Facebook Inc, added 2.6% to provide the biggest boost to the NASDAQ Composite.
