U.S. stock index futures edged slightly lower on Monday, indicating a modest pullback from record levels as investors held off from making big plays ahead of the start to earnings season. A strong June jobs report lifted Wall Street to multiple records on Thursday, the final trading session before the Independence Day holiday, with the Dow rising above 17,000 for the first time ever.
