U.S. stock futures fell as scrutiny deepens on Europe’s latest measures to contain the region’s sovereign debt crisis.
Stock-futures maintained losses even as a report showed that consumer spending in the U.S. accelerated in September, helping the world’s largest economy skirt a recession.

Incomes rose less than projected, sending the savings rate down to the lowest level in almost four years.
Stocks rose yesterday as European leaders agreed to expand a bailout fund and American economic growth accelerated.
