How major US stock indexes fared Monday

Monday, April 19, 2021 | The Associated Press

Stocks closed broadly lower on Wall Street Monday, pulling major indexes below the latest record highs they reached last week.

The S&P 500 fell 0.5% and the tech-heavy Nasdaq lost 1%. Small-company stocks did worse than the rest of the market. Technology stocks had some of the biggest pullbacks, but the losses were shared broadly by a mix of banks, energy companies and others that depend on spending by consumers.

The S&P 500 fell 22.21 points, or 0.5%, to 4,163.26.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 123.04 points, or 0.4%, to 34,077.63.
