Stocks skid lower at the open as report points to impasse on partial U.S.-China deal U.S. stocks opened lower Wednesday morning as doubts persisted about progress on a U.S.-China trade deal and weak corporate earnings offered few reasons for investors to bid stocks higher after touching records. The Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 52 points, or 0.2%, at 27,873, the S&P 500 index slipped 5 points, or 0.2%, at 3,115, while the Nasdaq Composite Index retreated 0.3% to 8,544. Trade talks between the U.S. and China are in danger of hitting an impasse, threatening to derail the Trump administration's plan for a limited "phase-one" pact this year.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump was visiting an Apple Inc. facility in Austin. In economic news, Wall Street was waiting for an account of discussions during the Federal Reserve's October policy meeting.
