How the major stock indexes fared on Friday

Stocks fell on Friday as a flurry of activity in Washington seemed to do little to reduce the chance that the government will shut down on Tuesday, or that a fight over federal borrowing will continue into October.

The Dow Jones industrial average and the Standard & Poor’s 500 index have now fallen on six of the past seven trading days.

With one trading day left in September, the Dow and the S&P 500 are still up more than 3 percent each, and the Nasdaq is up more than 5 percent.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 70.06 points, or 0.46 percent, to close at 15,258.24.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 6.92 points, or 0.41 percent, to 1,691.75.

The Nasdaq composite fell 5.83 points, or 0.15 percent, to 3,781.59.

For the week:

The Dow fell 192.85 points, or 1.25 percent.

The S&P 500 fell 18.16 points, or 1.06 percent.

The Nasdaq rose 6.86 points, or 0.18 percent.

For the year so far:
