Stocks for the second day in a row failed to stage a big rally after Monday’s losses. After hitting record highs last week, the indices have traded widely on the side. Investors are increasingly concerned about inflation, political uncertainty and the pandemic. The Dow Jones fell 31 points, or 0.1%, the S&P 500 traded flat and the Nasdaq
NDAQ
gained 0.2%. The US consumer price index rose 0.4% in December, largely in line with the Dow Jones estimate. Meanwhile, all eyes are on Washington as the House is expected to vote to impeach President Trump for the second time.
