(Bloomberg) -- U.S. equity-index futures turned lower as investors gauged whether either protagonist in the first American presidential debate emerged with the upper hand, and as traders recalibrated positions on the final day of this quarter.

The announcement came after lawmakers and media figures expressed frustration and exhaustion with the first debates. President Trump frequently interrupted Democratic nominee Joe Biden and also sparred with moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News after he asked him to allow Biden to answer his questions per the rules.

"Mr. President, I'm the moderator of this debate and I'd like you to let me ask my questions," Wallace eventually said.

"I guess I'm debating you, not him," Trump responded. "I'm not surprised."

The CPD has not yet formally announced what specific steps, if any, it will take to ensure adherence to the rules at further debates. Biden and Trump are set to square off again on Oct. 15 and 22, while Vice President Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) will have their single debate on Oct. 7.

The Hill has reached out to the CPD for comment.
