Dow futures closed lower on Friday after giving up earlier gains. After the initial thrust to the upside, the market fell victim to low pre-holiday volume and the buying dried up.

The fundamentals were mixed going into the session with the Fed minutes providing support because it signaled the central bank wouldn’t be as aggressive as expected with interest rate hikes, however, gains were likely limited by renewed geopolitical concerns over North Korea.

On Friday, June E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures settled at 24730, down 73 or -0.30%.
