How major US stock indexes fared Monday

The U.S. stock market inched higher Monday, the latest nudge in its record-setting, six-week run, as markets wait for the next development in trade talks between the United States and China

The U.S. stock market inched higher Monday, the latest nudge in its record-setting, six-week run, as markets wait for the next development in trade talks between the United States and China.

All three major U.S. stock indexes edged above the all-time highs they set on Friday, though the seemingly placid moves masked plenty of churn going on underneath. Nearly as many stocks in the S&P 500 fell as rose, and it took big gains for technology stocks and others to make up for sharp losses by oil producers.

On Monday:

The S&P 500 index rose 1.57 points, or 0.1%, to 3,122.03.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 31.33, or 0.1%, to 28,036.22.

The Nasdaq composite climbed 9.11, or 0.1%, to 8,549.94.

The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies fell 4.11, or 0.3%, to 1,592.34.

For the year:

The S&P 500 is up 615.18 points, or 24.5%.

The Dow is up 4,708.76 points, or 20.2%.

The Nasdaq is up 1,914.66 points, or 28.9%.

The Russell 2000 is up 243.78 points, or 18.1%.
