Futures for U.S. Markets, Asia Mixed; Facebook, Wynn Off in After-Hours

Futures for U.S. markets were unusually mixed late Wednesday as the Chicago Cubs led the Cleveland Indians in the final game of the 2016 World Series.

Futures for the Nasdaq were off 0.11% while the S&P 500 gained 0.08% and the Dow Jones Industrials gained 0.15% at 9:28 p.m. EDT.

Investors presumably had one eye on the game and another on fluid poll numbers following the FBI's bombshell that it would take a look at previously undiscovered e-mails from Hillary Clinton's private server. Investors fear a drop in equities should Donald Trump win.

The Fed also met Wednesday but, other than leaving interest rates unchanged, gave no concrete indication of whether it's planning a much-prophesied December rate increase.

Election jitters left the Nasdaq off 0.93% Wednesday while the Dow slipped 0.43% and the S&P 0.65%, the S&P's seventh consecutive daily decline.
