Wall Street retreated on Tuesday, with the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average heading for two-week lows as slumping oil prices weighed on energy stocks and General Electric ( GE ) sank for a second straight session.

On the S&P, eight of the 11 sectors were retreating, with energy posting the steepest decline. Materials lost ground as the commodities selloff touched metals including copper and platinum. Investors were also keeping an eye on the economic calendar, with final demand producer price inflation rising more than expected in October.
