[BENGALURU] US stocks opened lower as investors assessed earnings and data showed that inflation barely rose in March as consumer spending remains tepid.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 43.01 points, or 0.24 per cent, to 17,787.75, the S&P 500 lost 3.79 points, or 0.18 per cent, to 2,072.02 and the Nasdaq composite dropped 0.31 points, or 0.01 per cent, to 4,804.99.
