U.S. stocks are ending mostly lower as energy companies fall and investors look ahead to central bank meetings later this week.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 30 points, or 0.2 percent, to close at 17,067 on Tuesday. The Standard & Poor's 500 index edged down one point, or 0.1 percent, to 2,002. The Nasdaq rose 17 points, or 0.4 percent, to 4,598.

Five of the 10 sectors in the S&P 500 index fell, with energy stocks down the most.

Investors are looking ahead to central bank meetings this week in Europe and Japan, and waiting for key U.S. employment figures Friday.
