Stocks closed mostly lower on Wall Street Wednesday, even as gains for technology companies pushed the Nasdaq to its first record high close since September.

The S&P 500 slipped 0.2%, but it's still holding on to a gain of 11% for the month. Industrial, energy and health care stocks accounted for much of the selling.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average eased below 30,000, a day after passing that milestone for the first time.

Treasury yields were mixed and energy prices closed broadly higher.

U.S. markets will be closed Thursday for Thanksgiving and will be open for half a day on Friday.
