How major US stock indexes fared Tuesday

Stocks closed broadly lower on Wall Street Tuesday, erasing some of the market’s gains from last week.

The weakness came as investors debate whether the lifting of lockdowns around the world will drive an economic rebound or just more coronavirus infections.

Stocks of companies whose profits are most closely tied to the strength of the economy had some of the market’s sharpest drops. Treasury yields also fell in a sign of increased caution.
