NEW YORK —

U.S. stock futures are edging higher ahead of reports on manufacturing in March and construction spending in February.

After a three-day Easter holiday weekend, Dow Jones industrial futures were up 10 points at 14,507. S&P 500 futures edged up 0.4 point to 1,563.10. Nasdaq futures were up 3 points to 2,814.

The Institute for Supply Management is expected to report Monday that its manufacturing index grew for the fourth consecutive month in March, albeit at a slightly slower pace than in February.

Separately, the Commerce Department is expected to report that spending on construction projects rebounded in February, after a decline in January.

Both reports are expected at 10 a.m. Eastern time

Asian markets finished mostly lower on Monday. European markets remain closed for the Easter holiday.
