U.S. stocks swooned again on Thursday after the Fed raised interest rates and said that it would continue to let its balance sheet shrink.

U.S. futures were little changed on Thursday morning, after the Federal Reserve defied pressure from President Trump and raised rates.

Stocks fell sharply on Friday after weaker-than-expected data in China and Europe exacerbated concerns of a global economic slowdown.
