NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The stock indexes closed in the red on Monday in the kick-off of the final week of trading for the first quarter. After trading higher most of the day, the indexes sold off in the final 30 minutes of trading.
The DJIA closed down 11.61 points at 18,116.04, while the S&P 500 was lower by 3.68 to finish at 2,104.42. The Nasdaq lost 15.44 to close at 5,010.97, and the Russell 200 lost 1.65 to close at 1,264.71.
Still, barring a big sell-off, it looks like all the stock indexes will close the first quarter in the green. If this happens, this will be the ninth quarter in a row that the Nasdaq and the S&P 500 will close higher for the quarter. Only time will tell.
