U.S. Markets
U.S. markets began Monday's trading session with slight losses as investor uncertainty continues to be a main theme under President Donald Trump.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down, with  McDonald's (MCD) and  General Electric (GE) leading the losses, and the S&P 500 was also in the red with five of the main sectors trading lower. Despite the unwinding of the postelection rally, recent earnings releases along with management outlooks for the next year have been rather strong.
