The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 40.76 points, or 0.17%, to 24,231.59, the S&P 500 lost 5.36 points, or 0.20%, to 2,642.22 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 26.39 points, or 0.38%, to 6,847.59. Wall Street fell on Friday, whipsawed by developments with a probe into Russia’s alleged involvement in the US election as well as with progress on a tax bill in Congress. The benchmark S&P 500 was down as much as 1.6 percent following the report. Flynn pleaded guilty on Friday to lying to the FBI about contacts with Russia’s ambassador. Steep sell-offs have been a rarity on Wall Street this year. The S&P 500 has closed down by at least 1 percent only four times in 2017. But stocks recouped the bulk of their initial losses, after US Senate Republicans said they had enough support to pass a sweeping tax overhaul. The Senate news was the latest sign of progress for a tax bill being closely watched by investors, with hopes that significant corporate tax cuts will further fuel Wall Street’s record-setting rally. Advancing issues outnumbered declining ones on the NYSE by a 1.02-to-1 ratio; on Nasdaq, a 1.54-to-1 ratio favoured decliners. Energy was the best-performing sector, rising 0.8 percent. Oil prices settled up slightly, the day after OPEC and other crude producers agreed to extend output cuts until the end of 2018 to tighten global supplies and support prices
For the week, the Sensex was DOWN 846.30 points while the Nifty was DOWN 2.58% during the week.
