The Nasdaq Composite Index rose 3.9 points, or 0.1%, to 6,521. The tech-heavy index eked out a record of its own before retreating.

The Russell 2000 fell around 5 points, or 0.3%, to 1,506. The index of small companies hit an all-time high of its own in early trading, but soon turned lower and is on track to snap a seven-day rally.
