stock-index futures traded near unchanged Wednesday, with investors bracing for consolidation after strong gains by Wall Street in the previous session while keeping an eye on a continued stream of corporate-earnings data.

Solid demand at Tuesday’s auction of Spanish Treasury bills provided some fuel for a sharp rally by European stocks on Tuesday and was credited with lifting U.S. equities as well. A key test looms, however, as Spain prepares to sell longer-dated debt on Thursday, analysts said.
