The US major stock indices are ending the day with small changes.
  • S&P is ending down -0.13 points or -0.01% to 2459.14.  A fractional gain would have been a new record high close. That was not to be.
  • The Dow ended down -8.02 points or -0.04%. Like the S&P, any gain would have been a new record close. That was not meant to be.
  • The Nasdaq was the only major index to close in the black. It rose by 1.964 points or +0.03% to 6314.43.
Overall, little changes across the board as the week got started.
