US: Wall St opens flat as tech losses offset energy, Caterpillar gains

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 11.74 points, or 0.05 per cent, at the open to 25,439.32.
The S&P 500 opened higher by 0.18 points, or 0.01 per cent, at 2,819.00. The Nasdaq Composite dropped 2.15 points, or 0.03 per cent, to 7,735.27 at the opening bell.
