Nov. 12, 2012 at 6:55 PM   |   Comments

NEW YORK, Nov. 12 (UPI) -- U.S. stock indexes closed pool-table flat Monday.

With no government reports issued on the economy due to the Veterans Day holiday, markets were on their own -- and after a modest attempt at making gains slumped right back to the starting line.

By close of trading, the Dow Jones industrial average lost 0.31 points, off less than 0.01 percent at 12,815.08.

The Nasdaq shed 0.67 points, 0.02 percent, to 2,904.26.

The Standard and Poor's 500 gained 0.18 points, 0.01 percent, to 1,380.03.

The bond market was closed, leaving the benchmark 10-year treasury unchanged, yielding 1.611 percent.

The euro fell to $1.2706 from Friday's $1.2711. Against the yen, the dollar was 79.56 from 79.40 yen.

In Tokyo, the Nikkei 225 index lost 0.18 percent, 81.16 points, to 8,676.44.

In London, the FTSE 100 index lost 0.04 percent, 2.41 points, to 5,767.27.
