US stock index futures were mixed on Friday ahead of a key economic report that investors are hoping will provide further clarity on the direction of the economy and whether the Federal Reserve’s rate hikes to fight inflation are proving effective.

Futures linked to the Dow Jones Industrial Average were flat ahead of the July nonfarm payrolls report, which is expected to show additional job growth last month, albeit at a more moderate pace. S&P 500 futures were also flat, as were contracts for the tech-focused Nasdaq-100.
