S&P, Dow Jones open flat as retail sales cheer tempered by weak tech

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 4.12 points, or 0.01 per cent, at the open to 34,810.27.

The S&P 500 opened lower by 3.61 points, or 0.08 per cent, at 4,477.09. The Nasdaq Composite dropped 41.44 points, or 0.27 per cent, to 15,120.09 at the opening bell.
