NEW YORK -- U.S. stock futures are mixed ahead of the release of the latest data on industrial production and consumer prices. Two major U.S. indexes are in position to test record highs.

Dow Jones industrial futures are down 6 points to 14,446. The broader S&P futures have lost a point to hit 1,555. Nasdaq futures are up 1.25 points to 2,801.25.


The S&P closed within two points of its all-time high Thursday and the Dow extended its reach into new territory during a 10th consecutive day of gains.

The Labor Department is expected to report Friday that consumer prices rose in February, largely because of higher gas prices.

The Federal Reserve posts industrial production numbers and most economists believe output at the nation's factories, mines and utilities increased 0.3 percent last month.
