July 13 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks were set for a sedate open on Wednesday, a day after investors powered the S&P 500 and the Dow to record highs amid growing optimism about the economy.

Easing political tension in Japan and Britain and increased prospects of central banks providing stimulus post Britain's vote to leave the European Union have also helped reduce some uncertainty in global markets.

That sparked a broad rally on Tuesday that also led to the S&P 500 and the Dow notching new closing highs, and the Nasdaq to turn positive for the first time in 2016.

Dow e-minis were up 8 points, or 0.04 percent at 8:19 a.m. ET (1219 GMT), with 21,555 contracts changing hands.

S&P 500 e-minis were up 1.75 points, or 0.08 percent, with 166,895 contracts traded.   Continuación...
