Stocks end lower as tech weakness mutes rebound attempt

Stocks ended a choppy session lower Monday, with weakness in the tech sector proving a drag as investors assessed the fallout from last week’s U.S.-led equity rout. The S&P 500 SPX, -0.59% ended 0.6% lower near 2,750.79, according to preliminary figures. The Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.35% sank to a session low just ahead of the closing bell, declining nearly 90 points, or 0.4%, to end near 25,250 after rising by more than 140 points at its session high. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite COMP, -0.88% declined 0.9%. The S&P 500 tech sector continued the bloodletting seen last week, falling 1.6% to leave it down around 7.5% so far in October.
