U.S. Stocks Open Lower As Brexit-inspired Selloff Continues

U.S. stocks opened lower Wednesday, as worries about the impact of the U.K.'s vote to quit the European Union continued to rattle global markets. As equities and oil sold off across the world, investors fled to the perceived safety of government bonds, pushing Treasury yields to all-time lows. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 53 points, or 0.3%, to 17,784, the S&P 500 index fell 8 points, or 0.4%, to 2,080, while the Nasdaq Composite Index lost 25 points, or 0.5%, to 4,798.
