April 4 (Reuters) – U.S. stocks opened flat on Thursday following a recent run of gains, as lack of fresh developments on trade talks with China and worries about global economic growth kept risk appetite in check.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 4.71 points, or 0.02%, at the open to 26,213.42.

The S&P 500 opened higher by 0.59 points, or 0.02%, at 2,873.99. The Nasdaq Composite dropped 1.30 points, or 0.02%, to 7,894.26 at the opening bell. (Reporting by Shreyashi Sanyal in Bengaluru; Editing by Shounak Dasgupta)
