GovConIndexDOWNThe GovCon Index mirrored the larger U.S. stock indices’ reversal into negative territory in the last hour of trade Monday and closed at a loss of 0.222 points to 74.005 with no clear driver of news on activity in markets.

The GCI opened up nearly a half-percent in the first 45 minutes with the S&P 500 composite index at a 0.4-percent gain then as investors initially reacted to positive movement in European markets before the late afternoon decline.

Material and financial stocks were the biggest S&P 500 gainers and offset by declines in biotechnology, telecommunications and healthcare shares.
