How major US stock indexes fared Tuesday

Stocks closed lower on Wall Street Tuesday, ending the first three months of the year with a decline of 20%, the market's worst quarter since the dark days of the financial crisis. The loss for the S&P 500 in March alone was 12.5% as the surge of coronavirus cases sent investors fleeing from the market. Stocks did claw back some of those losses with a rally the past week. Massive aid for the economy and markets from the Federal Reserve and Capitol Hill have helped spur some buying, although the S&P 500 and the Dow fell more than 1.5% Tuesday.

On Tuesday: The S&P 500 index fell 42.06 points, or 1.6%, to 2,584.59. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 410.32 points, or 1.8%, to 21,917.16. The Nasdaq slid 74.05 points, or 1%, to 7,700.10. The Russell 2000 index of smaller company stocks gave up 5.21 points, or 0.5%, to 1,153.10.
