By
A A A

Stocks fell Tuesday, turning south for good mid-way through today's session as investors moved to the sidelines in the absence of market-moving data and more worries over the standoff in Ukraine. All 10 industry sectors in the S&P 500 ended in the red, with several sectors giving back moderate gains earlier in the day. Energy stocks had the steepest declines, falling about 1.3% as a group, after crude oil continued its recent slide, with the front-month contract falling below $100 per barrel mark for the first time in over four weeks.
