The S&P inched up 1 tenth of a percent on the day; for the month, it lost 1.8%.

Helios Quantitative chief investment officer, Joe Mallen: SOUNDBITE: HELIOS QUANTITATIVE CHIEF INVESTMENT OFFICER, JOE MALLEN (ENGLISH) SAYING: "There are these looming unknowns over the weekend whether we're going to add additional tariffs to China, we've got a massive storm coming in, people are just a little bit jittery but no one really wants to make a trade in either direction." Ulta Beauty had an ugly day.

The high-flying shares lost more than a quarter of their value after the cosmetics and skin care retailer warned sales would slow and cut its profit forecast for the full year.

The biggest gainer on the S&P 500 was Campbell Soup.
