The Dow Jones industrial average fell 49 points, or 0.3 percent, to 16,803 shortly after the market opened Monday.
The Standard & Poor's 500 index slipped less than a point to 1,960. The Nasdaq composite edged up six points, or 0.1 percent, to 4,404.
The stock market ended last week with a slight loss. But that was a minor setback. The S&P 500 has managed a gain of 1.9 percent in June, despite rising oil prices and signs of tepid economic growth.
