US STOCKS-Wall St and oil prices retreat after three-day rally

jueves 9 de junio de 2016 16:52 GYT

* Oil falls, weighs on equities

* Bond prices rise on global growth concern

* Indexes down: Dow 0.1 pct, S&P 0.2 pct, Nasdaq 0.3 pct (Updates to close)

June 9 (Reuters) - U.S. stocks retreated on Thursday after three days of gains as oil prices fell and global growth worries drove investors to safer assets like bonds.

Energy shares declined as crude oil prices also snapped a three-day streak of gains.

Still, the day's losses were slight, and the S&P 500 remains less than 16 points below its record closing high of 2,130.82.

That record could fall in coming days, said Bruce Zaro, chief technical strategist at Bolton Global Asset Management in Boston.

"A start of that move was that breakout (above) 2,120," earlier this week, he said. "I would expect some follow-through in the next days and weeks."

The Dow Jones industrial average ended down 19.86 points, or 0.11 percent, to 17,985.19, the S&P 500 lost 3.64 points, or 0.17 percent, to 2,115.48 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 16.03 points, or 0.32 percent, to 4,958.62.   Continuación...
