NEW YORK—The Dow Jones index flirted with an all-time high Thursday, but closed the day slightly in the red after a sell-off in the last 10 minutes.

At the closing bell, the Dow Jones Industrial Average stood at 14,054.79, down 20.58 (0.15 percent).

The Dow got as high as 14,149.15 at midday, not far from the all-time record of 14,164.53 of October 9, 2007.
