NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks are closing lower on Wall Street, with banks posting some of the biggest declines.

Barclays fell after New York's attorney general sued the British bank, saying it misled large investors by promising to protect them from predatory high-frequency traders. Barclays' U.S.-listed shares fell 7 percent.

Bed Bath & Beyond plunged 7 percent after the company posted earnings and sales that fell short of analysts' estimates.

The Dow Jones industrial average fell 21 points, or 0.1 percent, to close at 16,846 Thursday. It was down as much as 121 points earlier.

The Standard & Poor's 500 index lost two points, or 0.1 percent, to 1,957. The Nasdaq composite slipped less than a point to 4,379.

Bond prices rose. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.53 percent.
