Volume on the NYSE was 1.49 billion shares, with decliners beating advancers by a ratio of 7 to 4. About 2.21 billion shares changed hands on the Nasdaq, with decliners outpacing advancers by a ratio of 7 to 3. Intel reported solid fourth-quarter results.

The dollar was trading lower against the Japanese yen and was also down against the euro after a six-day rally. "Today's earlier earnings and preannouncements were very negative for the market," said Brian Williamson, equity trader with Boston Company Asset Management. "Yet again we find ourselves with actionable, negative news stories and the sellers are taking it to the buyers. The news is critical in tech because of the awful numbers so far." The chip sector remains a major focus. Advanced Micro Devices ( AMD) late Monday said fourth-quarter revenue would fall short of consensus expectations because of what the company called a challenging environment. Shares dropped $5.27, or 26.2%, to $14.86, pulling the Philadelphia Stock Exchange Semiconductor Index down 2.5%.
