The S&P 500 index slid 11.22 points, or 0.4 percent, to 2,775.63.

The Dow Jones industrial average gave up 119.53 points, or 0.5 percent, to 25,201.20.

The Nasdaq composite dipped 8.09 points, or 0.1 percent, to 7,695.70.

The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks declined 5.76 points, or 0.3 percent, to 1,676.54.

For the week:

The S&P 500 is down 3.40 points, or 0.1 percent.
