U.S. stocks closed modestly lower Thursday, with the S&P 500 and the Dow marking their third straight losses, after investors digested mixed headlines on the progress of trade negotiations, with reports indicating that China had invited American negotiators to Beijing for face-to-face talks, even though the U.S. Congress passed a bill supporting protesters in Hong Kong late Wednesday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 55 points, or 0.2%, at 27,765, the S&P 500 index shed 5 points, or 0.2%, to 3,103, while the Nasdaq Composite Index declined 21 points, or 0.2%, to reach 8,506, marking its second straight loss. The third straight drop for the Dow marked its longest string of declines since Aug. 5, while it was the longest such stretch of declines for the S&P 500 since Sept. 24. However, declines have been mostly mild and the benchmarks remain within striking distance of all-time highs. Investors focused on reports by CNBC of a purchase of TD Ameritrade Holding Corp. of larger discount-brokerage rival Charles Schwab , creating a behemoth with $5 trillion in assets. In economic reports, the U.S. Conference Board's index of leading indicators fell for a third straight month, adding more evidence of slowing economy. Weekly jobless claims, meanwhile, were little changed at 227,000, reflecting an employment market that remains healthy.
The S&P 500's real-estate sector Tuesday notched its worst day in three months, as investors sold shares considered defensive, including utilities and bought banks and energy names. The decline in real estate, down 1.7%, and utilities , down 1%, representing the worst declines among the S&P 500 index's 11 sectors on the session, contributing to the broad-market benchmark's first loss in the past three sessions. Real estate, as represented by the Real Estate Select Sector SPDR Fund , notched its sharpest decline since Aug. 5, according to FactSet data. The moves come as the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Nasdaq Composite Index logged their second all-time closing highs in as many sessions, with investors viewing the drop in real estate and utilities as perhaps partly a move for investors out of areas that tend to perform well in an economic slowdown and toward those that have been underloved, inculding banks and and energy shares .
