(Newser) – Declines in energy and tech stocks kept the Dow from posting a seventh straight day of gains. Those declines tempered earlier good news showing a slowdown in the decline of home prices and a rise in consumer confidence, reports MarketWatch.

  • The Dow dropped 2 points to close at 10,545.
  • The Nasdaq lost 3 points, closing at 2,288.
  • The S&P 500 dipped 2 points to 1,126.
