U.S. stocks turn choppy following worst week since Halloween

By STAN CHOE, DAMIAN J. TROISE and ALEX VEIGA AP Business Writers

Stocks are moving sideways on Wall Street Monday as the country's first vaccinations against COVID-19 have the end of the pandemic slowly materializing into hazy sight.

Investors are also waiting to see if government officials can deliver any progress on separate negotiations happening in Washington and on the other side of the Atlantic.

If successful, the talks could give markets a further boost. The S&P 500 was 0.1% higher in afternoon trading, though the majority of stocks in the index were down.

The slight gains follow up on the index's 1% slip last week, which was its worst weekly performance since Halloween.
