Stocks are opening slightly lower one day before the U.S. presidential election.

Just after the opening bell on Wall Street, the Dow Jones industrial average is down 30 points at 13,063. The Standard & Poor's 500 index is off three points at 1,410. And the Nasdaq composite index is down two at 2,979.

The Dow fell 139 points on Friday, even after a government report showed relatively solid job growth in October. The Dow was flat for the trading week, which was shortened by two days because of Superstorm Sandy.

Stocks in Europe and Asia are mostly lower Monday.
