[March 19, 2010]  SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- Stock futures are trading in a narrow range, a day after the Dow Jones industrial average rose for an eighth straight day.

Overseas markets are higher, despite growing renewed concerns about economic troubles in Greece. The country says it might need international assistance to resolve its debt crisis.

With no major economic reports due Friday, traders will have to look elsewhere for guidance on the state of the economic recovery. Data from earlier in the week showed that the economy continues to slowly regain its strength.

Dow Jones industrial average futures are up 6, or 0.1 percent, at 10,723. Standard & Poor's 500 index futures are up 0.8, or 0.1 percent, at 1,162.10, while Nasdaq 100 index futures are down 0.25, or less than 0.1 percent, at 1,941.50.
