March E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading lower late Friday, but nearly unchanged after clawing back most of its earlier loss. Nonetheless, the blue chip average appears to be headed for a second consecutive losing week as the Russia-Ukraine conflict loomed.

At 10:09 GMT, March E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading 34123, down 108 or -0.32%.

The market has struggled this week as investors continue to be on edge about the ongoing tensions between Russia and Ukraine. The Wall Street Journal reported midday Friday that U.S. officials expect a Russia attack in a few days.

President Joe Biden is expected to move more U.S. troops closer to Ukraine, NBC News reported. Additionally, the Ukrainian government and Russian state-controlled media on Friday exchanged fresh accusations of cease-fire violations at the border.
