Stocks End Mixed, With Major Indices Easing From Record Highs Although Tech Stocks Lift Nasdaq Composite

Stocks ended mixed Thursday, with shares of companies in the Dow Jones Industrials and the S&P 500 backing away from their record highs yesterday while technology stocks posted moderate gains to lift the Nasdaq Composite to a small advance. Upbeat economic data failed to generate much of a response, with traders again unsure how good news will influence policy-makers at the Federal Reserve. Gold and other metals rallied on continued dollar weakness, but crude oil fell while shares of energy and mining companies also retreated.
