“US STOCKS-Futures mixed as traders assess G7 comments on monetary stimulus.

March 3 (Reuters) – U.S. stock index futures were mixed on Tuesday, as G7 heads indicated willingness to take steps to mitigate the economic impact of the coronavirus epidemic, but stopped short of announcing concrete measures.

Wall Street’s main indexes had soared in the final minutes of trading on Monday after their worst week since 2008 as central banks in Japan and the European Union joined the Federal Reserve in signaling further interest rate cuts.

But a statement https://home.treasury.gov/news/press-releases/sm927#.Xl5OpmGbM1F.twitter from a meeting of G7 finance ministers and central bank governors on Tuesday only said they stood “ready to take actions, including fiscal measures where appropriate”.”, Source: https://finance.yahoo.com/news/us-stocks-futures-mixed-traders-130121427.html

Earlier in the morning US stock market futures were higher. After a very strong rally yesterday some profit taking could be the case today for stocks.
