U.S. stocks were little changed as indexes erased gains in the final minutes of trading, after a five-day rally in equities that sent the Dow Jones Industrial Average above 18,000 for the first time.

The Standard & Poor™s 500 Index fell less than 1 point to 0.2 percent to 2,081.92 at 1 p.m. in New York. Trading in S&P 500 companies was 38 percent below the 30-day average for this time of day. U.S. equity markets closed at 1 p.m. for Christmas Eve, and will be shut tomorrow for the holiday.
