(Newser) – A modest rally for stocks was mostly gone by the closing bell, ending winning streaks for the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The Nasdaq managed a tiny gain, enough to give it another record high, the AP reports. Trading was mostly listless on a day without major new economic data and only a few corporate earnings reports. The S&P 500 index fell 1 point, less than 0.1%, to 3,191. The Dow Jones fell 27 points, or 0.1%, to 28,239. The Nasdaq rose 4 points, or 0.1%, to 8,827. Bond prices fell. The yield on the 10-year Treasury rose to 1.92%. (Read more stock market stories.)
