Stock futures were mixed ahead of Thursday's open on Wall Street, with S&P and Nasdaq futures trading higher, but the Dow struggling as investors remain fixated on tax reform and efforts to keep the government funded.

The technology sector is building on Wednesday's gains, led by strength in semiconductor stocks. Nasdaq futures rose 0.20% in premarket trade.

Up next is the weekly labor market report in which jobless claims are expected to have increased by just 2,000 for the week ended Dec. 2 to 240,000.
