The US markets finished lower in thin trading following a disappointing new home sales report and as earlier enthusiasm faded over the Fed's decision to hold interest rates near zero until at least 2014.

On economic data front, weekly jobless claims gained 21,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 377,000. Meanwhile, new home sales posted a surprising drop in December for the first time in four months to a seasonally adjusted 307,000.
