Tesla, AMD And Amazon Lead The Nasdaq Lower Monday

U.S. indices were trading higher Monday as May trading begins and as investors await earnings reports this week.

However, the Nasdaq fell for the day as several technology companies were trading lower, potentially amid a rotation out of the space and into reopening-related sectors. Investors also continue to weigh recent earnings reports in the sector.

  • The Invesco QQQ Trust Series 1 (NASDAQ: QQQ) closed lower by 0.53% at $336.19.
  • The SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF Trust (NASDAQ: DIA) finished higher by 0.64% at $341.11.
  • The SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (NASDAQ: SPY) closed higher by 0.22% at $418.20.

Here are the day's winners and losers from the QQQ, according to data from Benzinga Pro.
