U.S. stocks opened little changed on Monday as investors appeared to take a pause after last week's strong gains. Volumes for the session are expected to be thin, with most banks, federal institutions and U.S. bond markets closed for the Columbus Day holiday. The S&P 500 opened unchanged at 2,014. The Dow Jones Industrial Average added 4 points to 17,090. The Nasdaq Composite began the day up 6 points, or 0.1%, at 4,836.
