Dow squeaks out 6th record high, S&P 500 falls
NEW YORK (AFP) - US stocks closed mostly lower Tuesday in quiet trade, but the Dow squeezed out a sixth straight day of record-high closings.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average edged up 2.77 points (0.02 per cent) to 14,450.06, an all-time peak.
The broad-market S&P 500 fell 3.74 points (0.24 per cent) to 1,552.48, snapping a seven-session winning streak. The tech-rich Nasdaq Composite dropped 10.55 points (0.32 per cent) to 3,242.32.
"The record-breaking winning streak for the Dow continued, eking out a very modest gain, while technology stocks kept the other major indexes lower," Charles Schwab & Co said in a market note.
