Associated Press Updated: August 22, 2014 at 4:45 pm

The stock market paused Friday, following four days of gains, after a speech by Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen left investors unclear about the central bank's next move on interest rates.

A flare-up in tensions between Ukraine and Russia weighed on the market after a Russian convoy entered the country, purportedly to bring aid supplies.
