NEW YORK (dpa-AFX) - Investors at the USstock marketn did not really venture out of cover after the latest records on Monday. The upcoming economic data and business figures from the banking sector from Tuesday dampened the risk appetite of investors, wrote analyst Michael Hewson of CMC Markets UK.
At the end of a trading day with little fluctuation, the leading index Dow Jones Industrial was quoted 0,16 percent lower at 33 points. For the market-wide S&P 745,40 it went down by 0,02 percent to 4127,99 points. Optimistic economic expectations and the cheap money from the central bank had only given both standard value indices record highs on Friday.
