NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. stocks opened little changed on Wednesday after two days of sharp swings as investors shrugged off a softer-than-expected reading on the labor market and ahead of the release of the ISM services report.

The Dow Jones industrial average .DJI fell 27.51 points, or 0.17 percent, to 16,368.37, the S&P 500 .SPX lost 2.12 points, or 0.11 percent, to 1,871.79 and the Nasdaq Composite .IXIC dropped 0.362 points, or 0.01 percent, to 4,351.61.
