U.S. stock index futures edged lower on Tuesday, as investors found few reasons to keep buying with the Dow and S&P 500 just off the latest in a string of records. Equities have been strong lately, with the S&P ending at records for the past four sessions, and rising in 11 of the past 13. Investors continue to watch the level of trading volume, which has been below average lately, potentially making the market more susceptible to big swings. The CBOE Volatility index, which typically moves inversely to the S&P, rose 3.9 percent on Monday despite the market's advance.
