U.S. stock indexes nudged higher in a calm day of trading Monday following the weekend's presidential election in France, which had the potential to upset global markets. The candidate who was in favor of keeping France in the European Union and in the euro currency won, to the relief of investors who feared the alternative would have hurt global trade.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index rose 0.09 points, or less than 0.1 percent, to 2,399.38.
