(Close): US stocks slipped below record levels on Monday following mixed economic data.

The Dow Jones index of blue chip stocks was down by 9.82 points, or 0.06%, at 16,937.26.

The tech-based Nasdaq edged up less than 1 point, or 0.01%, at 4,368.68, while the broader S&P was down less than a point, or 0.01%, at 1962.61.

The figures come as there is continued tension around Iraq, with continued fighting driving up the price of oil.

However, in Europe, research from Markit Economics revealed that its eurozone composite PMI for June slipped to 52.8 points from 53.5 in May, the weakest level since December.

On the markets, Micros Systems gained on news that it would be acquired by the business software maker Oracle.
