March E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading flat-to-lower shortly after the cash market opening. The lack of clarity over U.S.-China trade relations is providing some resistance. Some investors are reducing exposure in the market just in case President Trump decides to step away from the negotiating table. Others are saying a trade deal has been priced into the market. Position-squaring ahead of Friday’s U.S. Non-Farm Payrolls report is also keeping investors on the sidelines.

At 14:45 GMT, March E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading 25810, down 17 or -0.07%.
