The three indexes briefly a small bid in afternoon trade after, citing a source, that former FBI director James Comey will stop short of saying President Donald Trump obstructed justice in the bureau's investigation of ex-national security advisor Michael Flynn's Russian ties, but failed to follow through.

"The market took a small sigh of relief, but there's still some caution because we don't know what's going to happen when Comey testifies.

Comey is slated to testify Thursday in front of the Senate intelligence committee, marking his first public comment since being fired by Trump.
