NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- U.S. stocks are poised to open lower Monday, after the weekend came and went without Greek leaders reaching an agreement on a debt-relief deal.

S&P 500 (SPX), Dow Jones industrial average (INDU) and Nasdaq (COMP) futures slumped 0.7%. Stock futures indicate the possible direction of the markets when they open at 9:30 a.m. ET.

Bank stocks were notably lower in premarket trading, with Bank of America (BAC, Fortune 500) down 1.9%, Citigroup (C, Fortune 500) falling about 0.8%, and JPMorgan Chase (JPM, Fortune 500) fell 1.3%. Deutsche Bank (DB) plunged 4.8% and HSBC (HBC) dropped 2.1%.

Greek officials finished the weekend without a deal in their ongoing talks with private-sector creditors, and investors will be looking this week for the parties to finally reach an agreement. Without a such a deal, the country jeopardizes its access to bailout funds and might not be able to make a €14 billion debt payment that's due March 20.

"All eyes will be on Europe this morning again," said Weyman Gong, principal and portfolio manager at Signature. "Global investors are really concerned about the bankruptcy issues -- particularly a Greek default, which everybody wants to avoid."

EU summit: Still searching for a solution

European Union leaders will gather Monday for their first summit of the year.

The official agenda is focused on striking a balance between more austere fiscal measures for nations with unsustainable levels of debt and policies that will help revive economic growth across the 17-member euro-currency area.

But difficult debt negotiations in Greece have revived concerns about a default, and investors are growing worried about Portugal, where borrowing costs continue to soar.

U.S. stocks ended mostly lower Friday as jittery investors digested the weaker-than-expected GDP report, and Europe's crisis loomed in the background.
