Mon, 09/24/2018 - 23:26

Dow ends 180 points lower, snaps 4-session streak, as renewed trade-war fears sink stock mark

Mon, 09/24/2018 - 22:14
U.S. stocks ended lower Monday, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average halted a four-session winning run, as tensions over the U.S. and China's trade fight sapped appetite for assets considered risky. The Dow fell about 180 points (on a preliminary basis) to 26,562, booking its first close without also logging an all-time high since Thursday. Shares of Apple Inc. and Walt Disney Co. helped to lift the blue-chip gauge but those gains were more than offset by declines in Home Depot Inc. and Boeing Co. , which delivered the biggest drag on the gauge. The S&P 500 index , meanwhile, gave up 0.4% at 2,919, while the Nasdaq Composite Index eked out a slight gain, up less than 0.1% at 7,993, supported by the advance in Apple and shares of Microsoft Corp. . On Monday, Chinese officials called off planned negotiations on trade with the U.S. and fired back against the administration of President Donald Trump, accusing it of "trade bullyism." A set of reciprocal tariffs on U.S. and Chinese imports were set to be imposed on Monday, underlining escalating tensions between the global economic superpowers. The energy sector was a bright spot on the day as crude-oil prices surged after major energy producers over the weekend declined to commit to increasing crude output to address expected supply disruptions at a closely watched producer meeting. Global benchmark oil, Brent oil , finished at a nearly four-year high on Monday, while the U.S. counterpart, West Texas Intermediate crude , closed at the highest level in about two months, bolstering the energy sector . In corporate news, a number of deals were in focus, including a deal by Sirius XM Holdings Inc. to purchase streaming-music company Pandora Media Inc. in a acquisition valued at $3.5 billion. Separately, Randgold Resources Ltd. and Barrick Gold Corp. said they planned on merging in an all-share deal that will create an $18.3 billion gold-mining giant.
