Stock market opens little changed as investors brace for Fed; Facebook’s stock trades lower a 3rd session in a row

U.S. stock-indexes traded slightly weaker at the open on Wednesday, with traders hesitant to make any big moves ahead of the end of an important policy update from the Federal Reserve due at 2 p.m. Eastern Time. The Fed is widely expected to deliver a rate rise, and its forecasts could give investors clues to the pace of future increases. The Dow Jones Industrial Average [: DJIA] was trading flat at 24,727, the S&P 500 index retreated about 2 points or less than 0.1% at 2,715. The technology-laden Nasdaq Composite Index declined 12 points, or 0.1, at 7,354. Meanwhile, Facebook Inc. was trading lower, down 1.5%, for a third straight day amid mounting concerns about how the social network has managed user data. The co-founder of WhatsApp, Brian Acton, said late Tuesday it was now time to delete Facebook because of its failures to guard user information. Facebook has shed about $50 billion in market value this week alone.
