Wall St recedes from record levels in broad decline

NEW YORK, Dec 30 (Reuters) – U.S. stocks edged lower on
Tuesday, with major indexes pulling back from record levels as
the recent trend of modest moves and low volume continued in the
next-to-last trading day of the year.

Equities have been trending to the upside recently, buoyed
by strong economic data and the U.S. Federal Reserve’s
commitment to be “patient” about raising interest rates. After
the S&P 500 gained nearly 6 percent over the prior eight
sessions, it notched its 53rd record close of the year on
Monday, while the Dow just missed extending its streak of
positive sessions to eight.
