Stock futures are falling, a year after the stock market hit bottom.
With little in the way of economic reports or earnings Tuesday to help drive shares higher, investors are taking a breather after major indexes rose the past few weeks.
Asian markets were flat overnight and European markets are lower.
Stocks have surged over the last year since hitting 12-year lows. However, traders expectations about an economic recovery have also grown. The Dow Jones industrial average is up 61.2 percent during that stretch.
Dow Jones industrial average futures are down 34, or 0.3 percent, at 10,504. Standard & Poor's 500 index futures are down 4.90, or 0.4 percent, at 1,132.20, while Nasdaq 100 index futures are down 5.25, or 0.3 percent, at 1,883.00.
