U.S. stocks opened lower as California utilities continued to reel from the wildfires that have swept the state. The pound plunged the most since June 2017 as the Brexit process again threw the U.K. government into chaos. West Texas crude extended Wednesday's rebound from a record losing streak.

In a question-andanswer session late Wednesday, Powell played down recent turbulence in equities, saying volatility was only one of many factors that the Fed takes into account.
