US STOCKS SNAPSHOT-Wall St opens lower weighed by tech stocks

Aug 2 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks opened lower on Thursday, after technology stocks fell, as fears of a trade war between the United States and China were sparked after President Donald Trump proposed 25 percent tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 77.37 points, or 0.31 percent, at the open to 25,256.45.

The S&P 500 opened lower by 12.88 points, or 0.46 percent, at 2,800.48. The Nasdaq Composite dropped 47.76 points, or 0.62 percent, to 7,659.52 at the opening bell. (Reporting by Amy Caren Daniel in Bengaluru; Editing by Shounak Dasgupta)
