How major US stock indexes fared Tuesday


Stocks turned broadly lower on Wall Street Tuesday as investors shifted money into bonds, sending yields to their lowest level in nearly two years.

Bond prices rose and the yield on the 10 year Treasury dropped to 2.26%, its lowest level since September 2017. Falling yields are typically a sign that investors feel jittery about long-term economic prospects.
