(Reuters) – U.S. stocks fell at open on Friday after data showed U.S. job growth almost stalled in February, adding to global growth worries sparked by weak China export data and prolonged slowdown in eurozone.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 125.85 points, or 0.49 percent, at the open to 25,347.38. The S&P 500 opened lower by 18.14 points, or 0.66 percent, at 2,730.79. The Nasdaq Composite dropped 87.11 points, or 1.17 percent, to 7,334.35 at the opening bell.
