U.S. Stock Indexes Open Mainly Lower

U.S. stocks tilted mostly lower Monday, a day ahead of the U.S. presidential election.

“Our hope, probably shared by most investors, is the outcome is decided late tomorrow night and does not drag out over a number of days,” Fred Dickson, chief investment strategist at Davidson Cos., wrote in a note.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average   fell 30.56 points, or 0.3%, to 13,062.60 in the early going.

The S&P 500 index   shed 4.21 points, or 0.3%, to 1,409.99.

The Nasdaq Composite   declined 1.33 points, or 0.1%, to 2,980.81.

For every stock on the decline nearly two fell on the New York Stock Exchange, where 64 million shares traded by 9:45 a.m. Eastern.
