US markets opened lower Tuesday amid the new coronavirus variant causing worries and before the Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell's testimony.

The tech-heavy Nasdaq fell 41 points, or 0.26%, to 15,745.
The steep decline came amid worries that the new variant. known as B.1.1.529 in South Africa, could again prompt quarantine measures, close businesses and halt the economic recovery around the world.
Fed Chair Jerome Powell will later testify before the Senate Banking Committee where he is expected to say that the omicron variant poses a downside risk to the economy and complicates the inflation picture.
