(AP) - Investors recovered their poise after a shaky start to trading on Wall Street that sent stocks sharply lower. The dip gave investors who missed this year's stock market surge an opportunity to get into the market, and by midday stocks had recouped most of their early losses. The Dow was down as much as 127 points.
The Dow Jones industrial average fell 12.67 points, or 0.1 percent, to 15,294.50.
The Standard & Poor's 500 index fell 4.84 points to 1,650.51, or 0.3 percent.
The Nasdaq composite index fell 3.88 points, or 0.1 percent, to 3,459.42.
For the week:
The Dow is down 59.90 points, or 0.4 percent.
The S&P 500 is down 16.96 points, or 1 percent.
The Nasdaq is down 39.55 points, or 1.1 percent.
For the year:
The Dow is up 2,190.36 points, or 16.7 percent.
The S&P 500 is up 224.32 points, or 15.7 percent.
The Nasdaq is up 439.91 points, or 14.6 percent.
