U.S. stocks fell, the dollar weakened versus the yen and Treasuries rose after the Wall Street Journal reported Special Counsel Robert Mueller was said to have impaneled a grand jury in the ongoing Russia probe.

The WSJ report a half hour before the close in New York sent the S&P 500 Index to its lows for the session before the measure reclaimed some ground to finish down 0.3 percent. The Dow Jones Industrial Average eked out a fresh record. Ten-year Treasury yields slumped and the yen strengthened. Crude fell below $49 a barrel, while gold slipped.
