How the Dow Jones industrial average did Tuesday
(AP) - Stocks fell modestly Tuesday as investors took a breather from a market that notched yet another record high the day before.
Banking stocks were mostly higher after investors got some clarity on the so-called Volcker Rule, which bars banks from betting on the market with their own money.
The Dow Jones industrial average fell 52.40 points, or 0.3 percent, to 15,973.13.
The Standard & Poor's 500 index fell 5.75 points, or 0.3 percent, to 1,802.62.
The Nasdaq composite lost 8.26 points, or 0.2 percent, to 4,060.49.
For the week:
The Dow is down 47.07 points, or 0.3 percent.
The S&P 500 lost 2.47 points, or 0.1 percent.
The Nasdaq is down 2.03 points, or 0.1 percent.
For the year:
The Dow is up 2,868.99 points, or 21.89 percent.
The S&P 500 is up 376.43 points, or 26.4 percent.
The Nasdaq is up 1,040.98 points, or 34.5 percent.
