NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks are closing mostly lower as investors wait for the Federal Reserve's two-day policy meeting that starts on Tuesday.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index eased one point, or 0.07 percent, to close at 1,984 on Monday. The Nasdaq fell 48 points, or 1.1 percent, to 4,518. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 43 points, or 0.3 percent, to 17,031.

U.S. manufacturing output fell in August for the first time in seven months, reflecting a sharp fall in production at auto plants. Factory output fell 0.4 percent in August after rising in July, the Federal Reserve said.

The yield on the 10-year Treasury note eased to 2.59 percent from 2.61 percent late Friday.
