US: Wall Street opens slightly lower on Italian concerns


[BENGALURU]  US stocks slipped at the open on Tuesday, with bank stocks the biggest drags, pressured by turmoil in European markets following an Italian lawmaker's anti-euro comments and as relief from a reworked Nafta deal faded.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 2.30 points, or 0.01 per cent, at the open to 26,648.91.

The S&P 500 opened lower by 0.79 points, or 0.03 per cent, at 2,923.80. The Nasdaq Composite dropped 12.83 points, or 0.16 per cent, to 8,024.48 at the opening bell.
