NEW YORK- U.S. stocks are opening lower after turning in a record week.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 17 points to 14,379 shortly after the opening bell Monday.

The economic calendar is light on Monday, offering investors little to latch on to.

The Dow blew past its record high from October 2007 last Tuesday. It set records the rest of the week and ended up 2 percent.

The Standard & Poor's 500 fell two points to 1,548. The index is 16 points below the record high it reached in October 2007.

Both indexes had risen for six straight days.

The Nasdaq composite fell six points to 3,237.
