The S&P 500 closed down 8 points at 1,702.  Investors looking at the calendar know a government shutdown deadline is just a week away.

Meanwhile, they are still weighing how the Federal Reserve will move forward after last week's decision to continue its bond-buying program, the Wall Street Journal reports.

The struggling company's stock surged following news the company would be taken private by Fairfax Financial Holdings for $9 a share.
