How the major stock indexes fared Tuesday

A quiet day on Wall Street left stock indexes little changed after minutes from the most recent meeting of the Federal Reserve's policy committee showed few signs that the central bank plans on making changes to its stimulus program. Trading volume continued to be light.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 6.13, or 0.1 percent, to 12,393.90.

The S&P 500 fell 0.24, or less than 0.1 percent, to 1,332.63.

The Nasdaq composite rose 2, or 0.1 percent, to 2,791.19.

For the week:

The Dow is up 17.18, or 0.1 percent.

The S&P is up 0.22, or less than 0.1 percent.

The Nasdaq is up 1.59, or 0.1 percent.

For the year to date:

The Dow is up 816.39, or 7.1 percent.

The S&P is up 74.99, or 6.0 percent.

The Nasdaq is up 138.32, or 5.2 percent.
