NEW YORK, Feb 9 (Reuters) - U.S. stock index futures were lower on Monday, in the wake of disappointing economic data out of China and signs of rising tensions surrounding Greek debt negotiations.

* Greece's Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on Sunday ruled out any extension of its international bailout and announced moves to reverse some of the reforms imposed by its lenders. National Bank of Greece U.S.-listed shares dropped 9.9 percent to $1.09.

* China's trade performance stumbled in January, as exports fell 3.3 percent from a year ago while imports tumbled 19.9 percent, well short of expectations and raising concerns about the strength of the world's second-largest economy.

* Alcoa fell 2.8 percent to $16.10 in premarket after JP Morgan cut its rating on the aluminum company to neutral from overweight.

* Qualcomm shares gained 2 percent to $67.65 in premarket trade. A source told Reuters the chipmaker is likely to pay China a record fine of around $1 billion, ending a 14-month government investigation into anti-competitive practices.   Continuación...
