How major US stock indexes fared Tuesday
Energy companies led a sell-off on Wall Street Tuesday that extended a losing streak for the S&P 500 index to a fourth day.
The steepest fall in oil prices in more than three years weighed on energy stocks. Worries over rising production around the world and weakening demand have driven the 12-day slide in oil prices.
