NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks are easing back from record levels set the day before, when the Federal Reserve surprised markets with a decision to keep its economic stimulus in place.
The Standard & Poor's 500 index fell two points, or 0.1 percent, to 1,723. The Dow Jones industrial average slipped 32 points, or 0.2 percent, to 15,644 and the Nasdaq composite fell a fraction of a point to 3,783.
The price of gold surged as traders anticipated that the Fed's decision to keep buying bonds could weaken the dollar or cause inflation.
Gold rose $62 an ounce, or 4.8 percent, to $1,370 an ounce and is headed for its biggest one-day jump since the financial crisis.
The yield on the 10-year Treasury note rose to 2.73 percent from 2.69 percent the day before.
