How major US stock indexes fared Tuesday

Stocks closed lower on Wall Street after a wobbly day, giving back some of their big gains from a day earlier.

The S&P 500 lost 0.8% Tuesday after flipping between small gains and losses throughout the day. A day before, it leaped 2.4% for its best performance since June. For weeks, investors’ focus has been fixed on the bond market, where a swift recent rise in interest rates is threatening one of the main reasons for the stock market’s run to records through the pandemic.

The S&P 500 fell 31.53 points, or 0.8%, to 3,870.29.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 143.99 points, or 0.5%, to 31,391.52.

The Nasdaq fell 230.04 points, or 1.7%, to 13,358.79.

The Russell 2000 index of smaller companies fell 43.81 points, or 1.9% to 2,231.51.

For the week:

The S&P 500 is up 59.14 points, or 1.6%.
