March E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading lower late Friday, but clawing back most of their earlier losses. The blue chip average was under pressure from the start of cash market trading after weakening during the pre-market futures session.

The catalysts behind the pressure were concerns that President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus plan would lead to increased corporate taxes and lower bank stock prices after major U.S. lenders released their earnings reports to kick off earnings season.

At 19:34 GMT, March E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures are trading 30795, down 114 or -0.37%. This is up from a low of 30506.

Biden’s stimulus proposal, unveiled on Thursday evening, includes some $1 trillion in direct relief to households and has sparked fears that the government would need to hike corporate taxes to fund the spending.

Additionally, shares of JPMorgan Chase & Co, Citigroup Inc and Wells Fargo & Co, which had seen a strong rally in the run-up to earnings, were all down even as the banks posted better-than-expected fourth-quarter profits.

JPMorgan fell 2.2% following a seven-day winning streak that had pushed the stock about 12% higher. Overall, the S&P 500 Banks Index shed about 3.3%.
