S&P 500, Dow slip on trade concerns, but end off lows – AOL

NEW YORK (Reuters) – The S&P 500 and Dow industrials ended slightly negative but well above their session lows in volatile trading on Thursday as the arrest of a Chinese technology executive fanned fears of tensions between the United States and China over trade, while some big technology and Internet shares posted gains.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average <.DJI> fell 78.05 points, or 0.31 percent, to 24,949.02, the S&P 500 <.SPX> lost 4.1 points, or 0.15 percent, to 2,695.96 and the Nasdaq Composite <.IXIC> added 29.83 points, or 0.42 percent, to 7,188.26.
