U.S. stocks closed lower Monday, the first day of trade of the year, weighed by renewed concerns of global economic slowdown and increased tensions in the Middle East. An overnight drop in Chinese stocks that triggered a circuit breaker under a new rule also pressured sentiment.

“Ex-China we were expecting a positive (market). At the end of the day, except for a few companies like Caterpillar, this really shouldn’t have an impact on our markets,” he said.
