3. U.S. Stock Futures Fluctuate After S&P Puts 15 Nations on Review
U.S. stock futures fluctuated between gains and losses after Standard & Poors put 15 nations in the euro area on credit-rating review, while Germany and France resolved to push the region toward greater fiscal union.

United Technologies Corp. (UTX) advanced, while Alcoa Inc. (AA) declined in Germany.

Futures on the S&P 500 expiring this month retreated 0.1 percent to 1,253.6 at 9:41 a.m. in London, after rising as much as 0.3 percent and dropping as much as 0.8 percent. The Dow Jones Industrial Average contract was unchanged at 12,066 points.

The S&P 500 yesterday increased 1 percent, extending its best weekly gain since March 2009. Improving U.S. economic data reduced concern that the euro-area debt crisis will threaten the recovery in the worlds largest economy. Germany and France said they will push for rewriting European Union rules to enforce stricter budget discipline, at a regional summit on Dec. 9 in Brussels.
