(Reuters) - U.S. stocks fell at the open on Friday after rallying for the past five sessions on hopes of a resolution in the U.S.-China trade dispute and assurances from the Federal Reserve that it would be patient on interest rate hikes.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average .DJI fell 61.91 points, or 0.26 percent, at the open to 23,940.01. The S&P 500 .SPX opened lower by 8.53 points, or 0.33 percent, at 2,588.11. The Nasdaq Composite .IXIC dropped 38.61 points, or 0.55 percent, to 6,947.46 at the opening bell.
