An almost listless day for a Monday with light trading volume across the board.

At the closing bell, here is how the major indices ended the session: the DOW (Dow Jones Industrial Average) posted a slight loss of 3.01 points to end the session at 13,236.53; the NYSE (New York Stock Exchange) posted a loss of 6.18 points to end the session at 9,428.86; the NASDAQ posted a loss of 2.65 points for a close at 2,542.24; the S&P 500 moved lower by 0.72 points to end at 1,452.92 and the RUSSELL 2000 moved lower by 8.97 points to close at 779.80.

The FTSE All-World Index ex-US (top Large/Mid Cap aggregate from over 2,700 stocks from the FTSE Global Equity Index Series (GEIS) which covers 90% of the worlds investable market capitalization) posted a gain of 2.66 points to close at 251.04 and the FTSE RAFI 1000 posted a gain of 7.99 points to close at 6,025.36.
