Ongoing turmoil in the Middle East also weighed on investor sentiment, though oil prices managed to erase earlier losses on expectations for a drop in domestic supplies.

  1. The Labor Department's Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) showed U.S. job openings reached a record high in April, while hiring slowed -- pointing to a mismatch in skills, versus a slowing demand for labor. Nevertheless, the report points to a tightening labor market, which adds support behind a June rate hike at the Fed's policy-setting meeting next week. (Reuters)
