Updated : October 18, 2018 06:15 AM IST
The S&P 500 zigzagged furiously between positive and negative territory after the 2 p.m. ET (1800 GMT) release of the Fed's September meeting minutes.
The prospect of a more hawkish Fed was exacerbating equity investor fears of uncertainties, ranging from the US-China trade war and weakness in the housing market to the outlook for earnings.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 91.74 points, or 0.36 percent, to 25,706.68, the S&P 500 lost 0.71 points, or 0.03 percent, to 2,809.21 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 2.79 points, or 0.04 percent, to 7,642.70.
