The euro headed for its first decline in 3 days as data showed the region's economy cooling. The S&P 500 Index fell from near a record as investors kept an eye on Washington, where Jared Kushner prepared to testify to a Senate committee as President Donald Trump's policy agenda remained largely stalled. At a meeting in Russia today, OPEC and its allies indicated they weren't planning any major changes to their deal to cut production. That means there will be no moves to impose output caps on Libya and Nigeria, countries that had been excused from the deal forged November 2016.
