Wall Street opens in red and the Dow Jones falls 0.09%

Wall Street opened this Tuesday in red and the Dow Jones Industrial Average, its main indicator, fell 0.09%.

Ten minutes after the start of operations on the New York Stock Exchange, the Dow Jones stood at 34,632 units and the selective S&P 500 fell 0.16% to 4,480 points.

For its part, the Nasdaq market composite index, in which the main technology companies are listed, fell 0.22%, to 13,886 integers.

The stock market is being pressured by the increase in oil prices, which in recent weeks has reached a value that was not seen ten months ago after the announcement of cuts until the end of the year by Russia and Saudi Arabia.

A rise in the price of black gold could influence a rise in prices in general, thus fueling inflation.

In addition, investors are looking for more economic data to analyze what the next steps of the Federal Reserve (Fed) will be.

The US central bank will hold a two-day meeting starting on September 19 and will announce its decision on whether or not to raise interest rates the next day.

By sectors, the largest increases were for energy and financial, which added 1.64% and 0.39%, respectively. While the greatest losses were for healthcare and real estate, which fell by 0.58 and 0.43%.

Among the 30 Dow Jones stocks, the biggest losses were for UnitedHealth (-1.23%) and Amgen (-1.15%), while the biggest gains were for Walgreens (2.1%) and Intel (1.94%). %).
