US stocks closed sharply lower on Tuesday, continuing a string of back-and-forth moves in recent days.

Stocks whipsawed this week, fueled by concerns over reopening the economy and weak data points such as the steep decline in consumer price inflation.

Here’s where the markets closed on Tuesday:

  • The Dow ended 1.9%, or 457 points, lower.
  • The S&P 500 finished down 2.1%.
  • The Nasdaq Composite fell 2.1%.
