US stocks were mixed in early trade Wednesday, one day after the Dow closed above 15,000 points for the first time to cap a two-week climb.
About 35 minutes into trade, the Dow Jones Industrial Average were down 13.92 points (0.09 percent) to 15,042.28.
The broad-based S&P 500 rose 0.79 (0.05 percent) to 1,626.75, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index added 5.35 (0.16 percent) to 3,401.97.
The US markets took a breather even as Germany reported a jump in industrial production, China posted a trade surplus and The Walt Disney Co. topped earnings estimates.
