Stocks ended an indecisive day of trading more or less where they started as traders try to make sense of newly pessimistic views on the economy.

They’re also parsing another troubling drop in long-term bond yields Monday, which many see as a warning sign of a possible recession.

Large-company stocks ended broadly lower, led by drops in big technology companies.

Apple fell 1.2 percent after announcing several new services including streaming video and news.

Small-company stocks fared better.

The S&P 500 edged down 2 points, or 0.1 percent, to 2,798.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 14 points, or 0.1 percent, to 25,516.

The Nasdaq slipped 5 points, or 0.1 percent, to 7,637.

Bond prices rose. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.41 percent.
