Stock futures deteriorated further following the release of Q1 GDP in which the economy contracted at a pace of 0.7%, slightly better than estimates for a contraction of 0.8%, but a sharp reversal from the 0.2% growth rate initially reported.
Wall Street was also unnerved by the lack of a deal between Greece and its international creditors despite months of negotiations. With the next IMF payment looming on June 5, financial markets are bracing for the possibility of a Greek default and eventual expulsion from the European Union.
Besides GDP, today's other data includes the May Chicago PMI, expected to improve to 53.1 from April's 52.3, and the University of Michigan consumer sentiment index for May, last reported at 88.6 (flash) and expected to increase to 90.3.
