NEW YORK, Jan 27 (Reuters) - U.S. stock index futures fell on Tuesday, weighed by company earnings results including those of Microsoft, while concerns lingered over Greece's new anti-bailout government and its implications for the euro zone.

* The leftist government that came to power in Greece following elections on Sunday looks set on a collision course with the country's creditors. U.S.-traded shares of the National Bank of Greece fell 17.4 percent in premarket trading to $1.28.

* Market participants were watching out for a snowstorm that appeared to have spared New York City but continues to pound parts of the U.S. Northeast. New York Stock Exchange spokesman Eric Ryan said Tuesday would be "business as usual" at the NYSE.

* Economic data expected on Tuesday includes December durable goods orders at 8:30 a.m. EST (1330 GMT), November Case Shiller home prices half an hour later and Markit's gauge of the U.S. services sector growth at 9:45 a.m. (1445 GMT). New home sales and consumer confidence data are also due shortly after the opening bell on Wall Street.   Continuación...
