US stocks Tuesday fell for a second day in a row as speculation increased that the US Federal Reserve will soon scale back its bond-buying program.
At the closing bell, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 94.40 points (0.59 percent) to 15,914.37.
The broad-based S&P 500 dipped 5.81 (0.32 percent) to 1,795.09, while the tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index declined 8.06 (0.20 percent) to 4,037.20.
Stocks have soared for most of 2013 despite periodic fits that the Fed will trim its $85 billion per month bond-buying program.
