How major US stock indexes fared Tuesday

Major indexes closed lower on Wall Street, giving up nearly all of their gains from a day earlier.

Banks took some of the bigger losses as bond yields fell Tuesday, and energy companies fell along with a steep drop in the price of crude oil. Stocks of smaller companies, which have far outpaced the rest of the market this year, fell even more.

The drop in bond yields hurt banks because it means lower interest rates on mortgages and other kinds of loans.

The S&P 500 fell 30.07 points, or 0.8%, to 3,910.52.

The Nasdaq fell 149.85 points, or 1.1%, to 13,227.70.
