Stocks closed lower after a quiet day of trading on Wall Street. There was little in the way of news to shake the market out of a summertime stupor, other than a report from the Institute for Supply Management that the U.S. service sector expanded in July, helped by a rise in new orders.

The Dow fell 46.23 points, or 0.3 percent, to 15,612.13.

The S&P 500 fell 2.53 points, or 0.2 percent, to 1,707.14.

The Nasdaq composite index gained 3.36 points, or 0.09 percent, to 3,692.95.

For the year:

The Dow is up 2,507.99 points, or 19.1 percent.

The S&P 500 is up 280.95 points, or 19.7 percent.

The Nasdaq composite is up 673.44 points, or 22.3 percent.
