Markets Open Slightly Down

Wall Street opened slightly down this morning as August settled comfortably in and traders were wondering how much more steam the current rally has left in it.

In the first 20 minutes of trading, the Dow was down about 24 points, or about one-quarter of 1 percent, about the same as the tech-heavy Nasdaq.

The broader S&P 500 was down slightly more, about one-third of 1 percent.

This should be a light week for breaking news, as second-quarter results are largely finished and last week wrapped up with the most-watched news, the July unemployment number.
