U.S. stocks opened lower Wednesday as investors digested a report showing U.S. retail sales were flat in July. The Dow Jones Industrial Average /zigman2/quotes/210598065/realtime DJIA +1.50% was trading 0.7% lower soon after the opening bell, while the S&P 500 /zigman2/quotes/210599714/realtime SPX +1.49% fell 0.9% and the Nasdaq Composite /zigman2/quotes/210598365/realtime COMP +1.43% declined around 1%, according to FactSet data, at last check.

Investors are looking ahead to the minutes of the Federal Reserve's July 26-27 policy meeting, which will be released at 2 p.m. Eastern Time.
