[ccpw id=”6606″]

NEW YORK (Reuters) – The Dow and S&P 500 fell on Tuesday to snap a six-session winning streak as a sharp decline in Walmart (WMT.N) weighed heavily, but gains in Amazon (AMZN.O) and chip stocks helped the Nasdaq hold near the unchanged mark.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average .DJI fell 256.62 points, or 1.02 percent, to 24,962.76, the S&P 500 .SPX lost 15.98 points, or 0.58 percent, to 2,716.24 and the Nasdaq Composite .IXIC dropped 5.16 points, or 0.07 percent, to 7,234.31.
