Traders are watching to see if the S&P 500 can close above 2,000 Tuesday, as a meeting between Russia, Ukraine and the EU puts geopolitics back in focus.

The S&P 500 crossed above the psychological 2,000 line for the first time Monday, and while failing to hold, it still closed at a new record high of 1,998. The Dow was up 75 points at 17,076, and the Nasdaq was up 18 points at 4,557. It was the lowest volume day of the year.
