    Stocks opened lower this morning, and weakened further as the session progressed. Ultimately, the bulls and bargain hunters remained on the sidelines, making it difficult for the major averages to rebound. At the close of the session, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 602 points; the broader S&P 500 Index was off 55 points; and the technology-heavy NASDAQ was lower by 206 points (nearly a 3% drop).
