US futures are lower this morning ahead of the weekend as investors are cautious with Hurricane Irma moving towards the US. Irma has already caused damage to a few of the Caribbean islands and it is on track to hit Florida over the weekend. No major economic data was released this morning. Later today we will get data for wholesale trade and consumer credit. Markets in Asia closed mostly lower led by the Nikkei and European markets are trading mostly lower led by the FTSE.
