The S&P closed Tuesday unchanged through two decimal places at 2,268.90, meaning it did not record a gain or a loss. The last time the index ended a trading day flat was Jan. 3, 2008. That said, the S&P rose 0.46 percent to 2,279.27 at its session high, about 0.12 percent away from the all-time intraday high it reached Friday.

Before 2008, the benchmark index had gone nearly 11 years without posting an unchanged day. Since 1980, the S&P has recorded just 10 unchanged sessions.
