That release is followed by the Institute of Supply Management’s services index, expected at 10 a.m. Economists see that index rising to 52.4 in November vs. 51.8 in October.

Finally, the Labor Department’s Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey is anticipated to dip, and show there are 9.4 million open, unfilled job listings in October, down from September’s 9.553 million. That report also is due at 10 a.m.

Key earnings movers Tuesday morning include AutoZone (AZO), GitLab (GTLB) and Nio (NIO).

AutoZone shares reversed slightly lower in morning action, while GTLB stock soared 8%. NIO stock raced 4.5% higher in early action.
