By Oliver Gray - U.S stock futures were little changed during Tuesday’s evening deals after major benchmark averages retreated during the regular session as traders braced for a further interest rate increase from Federal Reserve policymakers, while long-term bond yields surged.

By 19:10 ET (23:10 GMT) Dow Jones Futures , S&P 500 Futures and Nasdaq 100 Futures were each trading flat.

In extended deals, Stitch Fix (NASDAQ: SFIX ) fell 1.5% after the company reported earnings results, posting losses of 89 cents per share on revenues of $481.9 million, down 16% from the same period last year.

Ahead in Wednesday’s session, market participants will be expecting the third consecutive 75 basis point rate hike from the Federal Reserve hike after a higher-than-expected consumer price index reading in August, while existing home sales will also be closely monitored.

On the earnings front, General Mills Inc (NYSE: GIS ), Lennar Corporation (NYSE: LEN ), KB Home (NYSE: KBH ) and Steelcase Inc (NYSE: SCS ) are set to report results.

During Tuesday’s session, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 313.45 points or 1% to 30,706.2, the S&P 500 dipped 44 points or 1.1% to 3,855.9 and the NASDAQ Composite fell 1% to 11,425.1.

On the bond markets, United States 10-Year rates were at 3.569%, the highest levels since April 2011.
