(Reuters) – Wall Street’s main indexes opened lower on Friday after a higher-than-expected rise in November producer prices fanned fears that the Federal Reserve could stick to aggressive interest rate hikes for longer.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 34.77 points, or 0.10%, at the open to 33,746.71. The S&P 500 opened lower by 9.34 points, or 0.24%, at 3,954.17, while the Nasdaq Composite dropped 43.83 points, or 0.40%, to 11,038.17 at the opening bell.
