Ahead of the Bell: Dow futures are trading down 57 points and S&P futures are trading down 5 points. Eurozone PMI manufacturing data temporarily lifts investors sentiment and overshadows weak Chinese manufacturing figures. Eurozone purchasing manager data, led mostly by strength in Germany was better than forecasted which also came alongside a round of upbeat unemployment data. The region's composite PMI jumped to 53.2 in January, from 52.1 the previous month, signaling the worst of the debt crisis worries for the bloc are behind it now. China's purchasing managers' index surprisingly fell in January suggesting a mild slowdown at the end of 2013 has carried over into the new year. The soft Chinese manufacturing figures are impacting trading in commodity-linked currencies and other growth-sensitive assets.
