U.S. futures have traded marginally lower as investors consolidate their positions, following the previous session’s strong gains. Furthermore, Tesla has cut the price of its Model 3 in Germany by about 4.5%, leading to speculation about the company’s future prospects.

Oil prices are creeping higher, with crude prices edging up as the market heads for a fourth straight week of gains.

The International Energy Agency is set to release its monthly oil market report later in the session, and traders will be looking to see if the organization downgrades its global demand outlook given the faltering macroeconomic growth.
