Stocks ended lower Tuesday, losing steam in late-day trading as tech shares pulled markets down.
Shares had been rising earlier in the session after President Donald Trump suggested he was considering a capital gains tax cut to help create more U.S. jobs and Russia said it registered the world’s first coronavirus vaccine.
The president issued executive orders over the weekend that would include continued payments of up to $400 a week of supplemental federal unemployment benefits and a payroll tax deferral.
