Stocks Down After Greek Election       01/26 09:01

   The U.S. stock market is opening slightly lower Monday as investors shrug 
off an election victory by a Greece party opposed to that country's bailout 
plan.

   NEW YORK (AP) --- The U.S. stock market is opening slightly lower as 
investors shrug off an election victory by a Greece party opposed to that 
country's bailout plan.

   The main focus in markets was Sunday's victory by Syriza, a left-wing party 
that has vowed to end Greece's painful austerity policies.

   The Standard & Poor's 500 index eased five points, or 0.3 percent, to 2,046 
in early U.S. trading Monday. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 64 points, 
0.4 percent, to 17,608.

   In Europe, Germany's DAX was up 0.9 percent while the CAC-40 in France rose 
0.4 percent. In Greece, the main stock market recouped some of its early losses 
to trade 3 percent lower.
