U.S. stock futures were pointing to a lower open on Wall Street on Tuesday, a day after the Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500 and Nasdaq declined for the second straight session. Investors continued to pile into bonds, pushing yields inversely lower on concerns about the U.S.-China trade war — and increasingly, the anti-government protests in Hong Kong. The Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq were all roughly 5% off their all-time highs set in July. China’s central bank, to the chagrin of the Trump administration, set its currency weaker than 7-yuan-per-dollar for the fourth consecutive session.
