Wall Street closes lower
US markets registered losses yesterday, as both the SPX500 and NSDQ100 closed in the red, snapping a 3-day winning streak. In contrast, the DJ30 closed slightly higher. The recent declines are attributed in part to the ongoing trade negotiations between the US and China, and a report showing new home sales in the US were lower than expected in January. Following a massive outage, the Facebook stock closed nearly 1.9% lower yesterday, and fell an additional 1.7% after-hours. However, some stocks registered fresh all-time highs, including 21st Century Fox, Visa and Procter & Gamble.
