SHARES on the New York stock exchange took their cue from a weaker bond market to move lower in early trading yesterday as the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell three points to sit at 4,184. Analysts had expected Wall Street stocks to take their cue from the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for March, and said the market was due to pull back. The CPI was expected to show a rise of 0.3 per cent. The 'core' rate, which excludes food and energy prices, is also seen to be up 0.3 per cent for the second straight month. 'The market has gotten ahead of itself,' said Dick Stein of MKI Securities. 'This market is headed for lower levels in the short-term, but it will be substantially higher for the year,' he said. Mr Stein said there were signs that the manufacturing rate was beginning to slow in the car industry. He said this would translate into slower car sales as well as increasing unemployment, which in turn would result in lower gross domestic product.
