NEW YORK Nov 26 The Dow and S&P 500 ended lower
on Monday, pulling back from last week's gains, as retailers
fell on concerns about heavy discounts at the start of the U.S.
holiday shopping season and the overhang of the "fiscal cliff"
kept investors wary of making big bets.
Based on the latest available data, the Dow Jones industrial
average was down 43.65 points, or 0.34 percent, at
12,966.03. The Standard & Poor's 500 Index was down 2.94
points, or 0.21 percent, at 1,406.21. The Nasdaq Composite Index
