03.08.2015 16:02 Wall Street. Major U.S. stock-indexes little changed

Major U.S. stock-indexes lower on the first trading day in August as oil prices touched a six-month low and data showed U.S. economy lost some momentum at the end of the second quarter. In U.S. data, consumer spending recorded its smallest gain in four months, while the pace of growth in the U.S. manufacturing sector slowed in July. On Friday, wage data showed that U.S. labor costs in the second quarter rose the least in 33 years. Investors have been keeping a sharp eye on economic data for clues regarding the timing of the first rate increase in nearly a decade. The U.S. Federal Reserve has said it will hike rates only when it sees a sustained recovery in the economy.
