U.S. stock indexes opened firmly lower Wednesday morning as worries about trade tensions and the outlook for global growth sparked buying in assets perceived as havens like government paper, which resulted in the heightened warning signal from a closely watched fixed-income recession warning.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average falls 200 points, or 0.8%, at 25,159, the S&P 500 index retreats 0.6% at 2,785, while the Nasdaq Composite Index falls 0.7% at 7,554. Chinese state-media reports underlined the country's scope to userare-earth minerals, used in the production of everyday devices, such as mobile phones, memory chips and rechargeable batteries, as an economic weapon.

The spread between the 10-year Treasury note and the 3-month Treasury bill moved further into negative territory, dropping to its lowest since 2007. Such inversions of that measure of the yield curve are viewed as reliable recession indicator.
