US stock markets slipped on Monday as healthcare stocks slid and rising oil prices and a looming deadline for exemptions to US steel and aluminum tariffs weighed on investor sentiment.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 147.49 points, or 0.61 per cent, to 24,163.7, the S&P 500 lost 21.83 points, or 0.82 per cent, to 2,648.08 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 53.53 points, or 0.75 per cent, to 7,066.27, reports Reuters.
