After a sluggish day, US markets ended higher thanks to a late-afternoon push. 

The Dow gained 0.02% to 20,624.05 and the S&P 500 was up 0.17% at 2,351.16.

The Nasdaq climbed to its fourth record close of the week - up 0.41% at 5,838.58 points.

Despite the positive finish, stocks seem to have lost some momentum in recent days, after weeks of rallying on stronger-than-expected reports on the economy.

Lindsey Bell, an investment strategist at CFRA Research, warned that optimism about Donald Trump's economic policies could again give way to caution. 

"People are focusing on only the good of what his campaign promises were," she said.

"What makes me nervous is that it feels like the market is ignoring what could come on immigration, trade, healthcare - the negative implications that could come from a protectionist government."
