U.S. stock futures were pointing to a higher open Monday on Wall Street. The Dow Jones Industrial Average briefly traded above 29,000 for the first time ever on Friday but ended up closing nearly a half percent lower. The Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq broke two-day winning streaks as investors considered the government’s weaker-than-expected December jobs report at the end of a volatile week of geopolitical concerns. However, on the week, the Nasdaq was the big winner with an increase of 1.75%. The S&P 500 saw gains of nearly 1%. and the Dow advanced 0.66% for the week. Ahead of Monday’s regular session, the Dow was about 177 points away from 29,000.
