U.S. stocks retreated, sending the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index lower for a third straight day, as growing funding stress in Europe fueled concern the region is struggling to contain its sovereign debt crisis.

Stocks pared losses (SPX) as the Wall Street Journal reported that S&P has not warned about a possible French downgrade. Financial shares in the S&P 500 rose 0.4 percent, rebounding from a decline.

The S&P 500 has struggled to stay above its 2010 closing level of 1,257.64 since topping it during the last week of October after slumping below it for almost three months. The index is down 2.5 percent for the year through yesterday, led by a 21 percent slide in financial shares.
