GDP revised down to -1.5%

Equity index futures were higher before first quarter gross domestic product (GDP) revisions were released. The GDP revision was expected to come in at -1.3% from the earlier -1.4%, but actually ended up being worse at -1.5%. The revision also revealed higher-than-expected inflation growth at 8.1% instead of the forecasted 8%. Equity futures trimmed their premarket gains on the news.
