Stocks fell on Wednesday, pulling back from record highs as investors fretted about U.S.-China trade talks potentially stalling out.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average traded 67 points lower, or 0.2%. The S&P 500 pulled back 0.2% while the Nasdaq Composite slid 0.3%.
The Wall Street Journal reported, citing former Trump administration officials, that the ongoing trade talks could hit an impasse that would derail a so-called phase one trade deal. Uncertainty around trade also grew after the Senate passed a bill supporting Hong Kong protesters. This led China to accuse the U.S. of interfering in domestic affairs.
