The stock market is flat in early trading as investors continue to worry about the economy and the growing possibility of a government shutdown.

The Dow Jones industrial average is down 18 points to 15,316. The Standard & Poor's 500 index is off one point to 1,695. The Nasdaq is down two points to 3,765.

The U.S. government will run out of funding on Sept. 30, unless both parties can agree to pass a temporary funding bill in the next few days. The Dow and S&P 500 have fallen four consecutive days on concerns a government shutdown could harm the fragile economic recovery.

Investors did get an unexpectedly positive August durable goods report. Orders for long-lasting manufactured goods rose 0.1 percent last month, following an 8.1 percent decline in July.
