Markets Open Mixed

Wall Street opened flat-to-mixed, following positive June retail sales news and strong second-quarter Goldman Sachs earnings.

In the first 15 minutes of trading, the Dow is down just a few points.

The broader S&P 500 is essentially flat and the tech-heavy Nasdaq is down less than one-third of 1 percent.

The markets had a strong rally on Monday, with the Dow up more than 180 points.

But they stumbled coming out of the gates this morning, despite the better-than-expected uptick in June retail sales, which The Post's Ylan Mui writes about here.
