U.S. stock market retreats at the open as tariff tensions return to the fore
U.S. stocks on Monday mostly headed lower at the open as tensions over tariffs remained in focus for investors after China canceled trade talks with the U.S. on the deadline for a fresh round of tariffs for the superpowers. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.3% at 26,670, the S&P 500 index retreated by 0.3% at 2,919, while the Nasdaq Composite Index retreated 0.8% at 7,918. The blue-chip Dow is coming off its second straight record, after notching its first since Jan. 26 on Thursday, even as worries about escalating tensions between Beijing and Washington ran in the background. A new round of tariffs between China and the U.S. were set to take effect Monday. Meanwhile, rising oil prices are expected to offer some support for the energy sector as Brent crude oil , the international benchmark, traded at a roughly four-year high above $80 a barrel and the U.S. oil benchmark was trading at its highest levels since around July. A gathering of energy producers that concluded without a clear plan to address an expected shortfall from Iran due to U.S. sanctions on the country, was cited as the spark for Monday's crude-oil rally. In corporate news, Sirius XM Holdings Inc. said it is buying music-streaming firm Pandora Media Inc. in an all-stock deal valuing the company at about $3.5 billion. Shares of Pandora soared by more than 6%, while those for Sirius declined by 4.6%. Comcast Corp. topped 21st Century Fox Inc. in the monthslong takeover battle for European pay-TV giant Sky PLC.
