Stocks ended lower on Wall Street, but major indexes still wound up with big gains for October, including the best month for the Dow Jones Industrial Average since 1976.

Investors this week will be watching for another jumbo interest rate increase from the Federal Reserve and the government’s monthly report on the job market. Starbucks is among the companies reporting earnings this week.

On Monday:

The S&P 500 fell 29.08 points, or 0.7%, to 3,871.98.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 128.85 points, or 0.4%, to 32,732.95

The Nasdaq fell 114.31 points, or 1%, to 10,988.15.

The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies fell 0.06 points, or less than 0.1%, to 1,846.86.

For the year:

The S&P 500 is down 894.20 points, or 18.8%.
