The S&P 500 Index turned lower after an early surge that pushed it over 2,800 for the first time.

The tumble follows a sharp jump in Viacom Friday after a published report suggested that a merger might be a possibility. And UnitedHealth raised its adjusted profit projection due to the recent tax overhaul. Adding extra impetus to the markets last week was the latest batch of earnings and economic data.

The TSX Composite Index closed on Friday up 21.24 points to end the first full week of the year at 16,308.18.
This is why it is getting easier for the Dow to move in 1000 point increments rather quickly. "We know from a variety of sentiment indicators how euphoric the environment has gotten". Ford made the announcement at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The Nasdaq shed 37.38 points, or 0.5 percent, to 7,223.69.
