Wall Street ends slightly higher

US stock indices closed slightly higher on the back of gains by utilities and the tech sector, even as caution remains in the market ahead of the Federal Reserve's policy decisions this week. 

 

Dow Jones barely inched down 0.01%, or 1.58 points to 25,320.73. 

 

Standard and Poor's 500 rose 0.17%, or 4.58 points to 2,786.85, while tech-heavy NASDAQ advanced 0.57%, or 43.87 points. 

 

Wall Street was mostly mixed today with tech, utilities, consumer stocks pulling the indices higher by the end of the session. 

 

The Federal Reserve is expected to hike interest rates by 25 basis points this week and announce further step in normalizing the balance sheet and tightening monetary policy.
