Wall Street opens flat ahead of Yellen speech

U.S. stocks were little changed at the open on Friday as investors awaited Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen’s speech, which could give more clarity on the odds of an interest rate hike this month.

The Dow Jones industrial average .DJI was up 4.41 points, or 0.02 percent, at 21,007.38, the S&P 500 .SPX was down 1.89 points, or 0.07 percent, at 2,380.03 and the Nasdaq composite .IXIC was down 6.93 points, or 0.12 percent, at 5,854.29.
