Stock Market Today: September 5, 2018

09/05/2018 The U.S. equity averages exhibited a mostly negative tone amidst a generally softer day of trading on Wednesday.

Of the major large-cap indexes, only the Dow Jones Industrial Average was able to spend time in positive ground during the session.

The Dow, which opened slightly higher, fell quickly into the red and scarcely showed signs of a recovery. The S&P 500 and NASDAQ were a bit more resilient at times, with each composite group rising briefly above their respective breakeven line in the afternoon.
