U.S. Stock Futures Fall After Run of Dow Records

Stock market futures DJIA NYSENEW YORK -- Wall Street stock futures are signaling a declining Dow after six straight days of gains that pushed the index to a series of all-time highs.

Dow Jones industrial futures fell 18 points to 14,363. S&P 500 futures are down 3 points at 1,550. Nasdaq futures are down 6 points at 2,802.

Friday's strong U.S. jobs report helped propel Asian stock markets higher. But shares in Europe were weighed down by renewed worries about the region's struggling economies.

With little on the economic calendar in Europe and the U.S. Monday, stocks may be sluggish, especially after last week's historic run. Last week was capped with a government report showing the U.S. unemployment rate fell to 7.7 percent in February from 7.9 percent in January.
