Investing.com - U.S. stock futures were trading in a tight range on Wednesday night, following gains among benchmark averages as weaker ADP employment and preliminary GDP figures boosted bets of a pause in interest rate hikes from U.S. Federal Reserve policymakers.

By 6:40pm ET (10:40pm GMT) Dow Jones Futures was up by 0.2%, S&P 500 Futures was flat and Nasdaq 100 Futures lifted 0.1%.

In extended deals, Salesforce (NYSE:CRM) added 5.7%, reporting Q2 EPS of $2.12 versus $1.90 expected on revenues of $8.6 billion versus $8.53 billion expected. The company forecasted Q3 2024 EPS in the range of $2.05-$2.06 versus $1.83 expected, with revenues predicted in the range of $8.7-8.72 billion versus $8.66 billion expected.

Okta, Inc. (NASDAQ:OKTA) popped 9.2% after the company reported Q2 EPS of $0.31 versus $0.22 expected, with revenue reported at $556 million versus $534.67 million expected.
