The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed slightly down Tuesday following weeks of gains culminating in Monday’s record high.

The index closed at 15,750.67, down .21% from a day earlier. The S&P 500, which has also surged recently, ended the day .24% and the Nasdaq was unchanged.

The Dow Jones spiked last week on a positive jobs report, hitting three record highs in the week through Monday.
