New York Stock Exchange on final day of trading, December 31, 2004. Trading was light on the final day of trading at the New York Stock Exchange in 2004, with U.S. stocks ending slightly lower as investors booked gains late in the thin holiday trading session, but indexes moved into positive territory in 2004 for the second year in a row. For the year, the Dow Jones industrial average was up 3.2 percent, ending at 10,783.01. REUTERS/Henny Ray Abrams HRA
