Stock Futures Tick Up After Market Pullback

U.S. stock futures ticked up Wednesday, signaling a tepid rebound for major indexes that have come under renewed pressure on concerns that the pace of the economic recovery is slowing.

Futures on the S&P 500 edged up 0.2%. The broad stocks gauge fell for the sixth time in seven trading days Tuesday, but remains roughly 2% below the all-time high it notched in early September.
