Stimulus jitters dent Wall St’s early gains; Nasdaq hits record

Major U.S. averages on Monday (January 25) closed well off their best levels of the day, which included a Nasdaq record, as concerns over the timing and size of fiscal stimulus dented optimism at the start of a week of earning reports from mega-cap companies.

Unofficially, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 33.77 points, or 0.11%, to 30,963.21, the S&P 500 gained 14.39 points, or 0.37%, to 3,855.86 and the Nasdaq Composite added 95.76 points, or 0.71%, to 13,638.82.
