Print | Front Page | Email this story

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stock futures are falling in the wake of the market's best day since 2009.

Stocks surged Tuesday after the Federal Reserve pledged to keep its key interest rate at nearly zero into 2013. The central bank also said it considered other "policy tools" to spur economic growth.

But the Fed's statement included a dim outlook on the economy. It said growth this year has been "considerably slower" than it expected and that it anticipates a slower pace of recovery over coming quarters.

Ahead of the opening bell, Dow Jones industrial average futures are down 74 points, or 0.7 percent, to 11,120. S&P 500 futures are down 17, or 0.8 percent, to 2,138. Nasdaq 100 futures are down 7.60, or 0.6 percent, to 1,164.10
