How the Dow Jones industrial average did Tuesday
Grim economic news from Europe and airstrikes in Syria rattled global stock markets on Tuesday. Most of the damage was felt in Europe, which fell sharply after a closely watched gauge of business activity for the region fell to a nine-month low. The disappointing news about Europe’s economy also weighed down Wall Street. The Dow Jones industrial average opened lower and finished the day with its second triple-digit loss in a row.
The Dow Jones industrial average dropped 116.81 points, or 0.7 percent, to 17,055.87.
The S&P 500 index slipped 11.52 points, or 0.6 percent, to 1,982.77.
The Nasdaq composite fell 19 points, or 0.4 percent, to 4,508.69.
