Markets Open Slightly Down

Wall Street took a breather from its big rally yesterday, opening slightly down this morning.

In the first 28 minutes of trading, the Dow is off about 15 points, or a fraction of 1 percent.

The tech-heavy Nasdaq is up 4 points and the broader S&P 500 is flat.

The markets are awaiting current data on existing-home sales, due out at 10 a.m.
