The S&P 500 index fell 0.81% to close at 2,028.26 and was down by around 3% from its 52-week high hit on December 29, 2014. The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished 0.54% lower at 17,640.84, and the Nasdaq Composite was down 0.84% at 4,664.71. Meanwhile, European markets ended higher on Monday as slumping oil prices lifted stocks of companies that benefit from lower fuel prices, such as airlines, which also helped offset the decline in energy shares.
