U.S. stock futures slipped slightly on Friday, Jan. 11, as the equity rally to begin the new year looked as if it would fail to materialize for a sixth day day following a dovish message from the chairman of the Federal Reserve and amid renewed hopes that trade talks between the U.S. and China will deliver a near-term deal.
