Futures mixed as central bankers gather in Wyoming

NEW YORK (AP) — Futures are mixed as the leaders of the world’s central banks gather in Wyoming and a day after a technical glitch halted most Nasdaq trading for about three hours.

Dow Jones industrial futures are down a point at 14,938. S&P futures have added less than a point to 1,655.70. Nasdaq futures are up 3.5 points to 3,105.25.

The annual meeting of central bankers in Jackson Hole has produced major economic news in past years. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke hinted at new rounds of economic stimulus in two of the past three years.

This year, Fed Vice Chair Janet Yellen and former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers are vying to replace Bernanke, who is expected to step down when his second term ends in January.
