US stocks opened lower on Tuesday, taking back some of the prior session’s big gains.
The S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite had their best day in nearly two weeks Monday, while the Dow recorded its best session since June 5.

Here’s how the market opened:
- The Dow opened 0.4%, or 100 points, lower.
- The S&P slipped 0.1%.
- The Nasdaq opened flat.
