Stock index futures were mostly flat as investors found few reasons to make big bets with equities near all-time highs and little clarity over Federal Reserve policy. Erin Gibbs, Equity Chief Investment Officer at S&P's Investment Advisory Services, sees stocks heading higher, even with a cautionary assessment of the US economy. U.S. producer prices were flat in July and pointed to very little inflationary pressure in the economy, which could add to worries at the U.S. Federal Reserve that inflation is running too low. Hannah Anderson, the 16-year-old California girl kidnapped and then rescued in the Idaho backcountry apparently broke her silence on social media and offered new details about her ordeal. According to Hannah, her captor "deserved what he got" when he was shot to death.
