US STOCKS SNAPSHOT-Wall Street opens flat following rally
NEW YORK Jan 3 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks opened little changed on Thursday as investors took profit following a massive rally in the previous session.
The gains on Wednesday were spurred by a deal by U.S. lawmakers to avert a "fiscal cliff" of austerity measures that had been due to kick in this year.
The Dow Jones industrial average was down 10.83 points, or 0.08 percent, at 13,401.72. The Standard & Poor's 500 Index was down 1.51 points, or 0.10 percent, at 1,460.91. The Nasdaq Composite Index was down 4.95 points, or 0.16 percent, at 3,107.31.
