BLBG: U.S. Stocks Slip From Records as Bonds Advance: Markets Wrap
 
S&P 500 falls for second time in 11 sessions as oil declines
Dollar little changed with gold as risk rallies pause


U.S. stocks fell from all-time highs after rising in nine of the past 10 days, while Treasuries advanced as investors awaited Federal Reserve meeting minutes for clues on the pace of tightening. The euro extended declines political risk in the region increased.

The torrid gains in American equities stalled on a day with few earnings reports and before data on the housing market. The dollar was little changed ahead of the Fed’s report, with investors speculating officials will strike a hawkish tone after the meeting’s statement showed a more measured approach. Europe’s currency dropped a fourth day, briefly passing 1.05 per dollar for the first time in more than six weeks as sovereign bonds across the region advanced. Oil fell from the highest price in more than a week.
While American risk assets continue to attract buyers speculating growth in the world’s largest economy is robust enough to withstand higher interest rates, investors in Europe seem increasingly divided, with French presidential elections and the U.K.’s Brexit plans driving demand for the safest debt. Optimism for global economic growth and improved corporate earnings has been supporting stocks.
