US stock futures were broadly flat ahead of the open on Monday as President Joe Biden and House Republican Speaker Kevin McCarthy prepared to meet to resume debt-ceiling negotiations later in the day, amid warnings a disastrous default is less than two weeks away.

Contracts on the S&P 500 (^GSPC) meandered, down 0.11% at last check. Those on the Dow Jones Industrial Average (^DJI) were about flat, while the technology-heavy Nasdaq Composite (^IXIC) slipped 0.14% Monday morning.

Wall Street is bracing for crunch time in the debt-ceiling showdown, as the risk of a government default of some sort becomes more real. Anxiety is mounting, and Wall Street banks and asset managers are preparing for the fallout from a potential default, in case an extension or agreement fails to be hammered out in Washington.

After a weekend of near deadlock, Biden returned back to Washington Sunday, ending his trip to Asia short to resume talks. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen reiterated the US faces a June 1 “X-date” deadline for default.

In the Treasuries market, the yield on the two-year note fell to 4.256%, while that on the 10-year Treasury fell to 3.663%.

Against the current uncertain backdrop, several Fed board members are on the speech circuit this week, and the minutes of the last policymakers’ meeting is set for release on Wednesday.

Also on Wall Street’s plate this week are earnings from retailers Dollar General (DG), Costco (COST), and BJ’s (BJ) which should give a deeper understanding of the health of the consumer.
