"Volatility is increasing on the heels of uncertainty in trade discussions," said Terry Sandven, chief equity strategist for US Bank Wealth Management.
Among individual companies, Walt Disney gained 1.4 per cent after announcing it had reached agreement with Comcast to take control of streaming service Hulu. Comcast, which holds a 33 per cent stake, advanced 1.5 per cent. (AFP)
