Investing.com - U.S. stock futures traded slightly higher during Tuesday’s evening deals after major benchmark averages finished the regular session lower as investors looked ahead to key inflation data.
The consumer price index , slated at 08:30 a.m. ET, Wednesday, is expected to touch fresh 41-year highs of 8.8% in June, lifting from May’s reading of 8.6%. Surging inflation pressures are likely to bolster bets of another 75 basis point hike at the next Federal Reserve meeting as policymakers forge ahead with an aggressive rate tightening timeline.

United Airlines Holdings Inc (NASDAQ: UAL ) lifted 8.1%, Delta Air Lines Inc (NYSE: DAL ) gained 6.2%, while Bank of America Corp (NYSE: BAC ) lifted 7.4%, and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd (NYSE: NCLH ) gained 5.8%.
