Major U.S. stock-indexes fell in early trading on Tuesday in a broad-based retreat as China's surprise devaluation of the yuan pushed the dollar higher and pressured commodity-related shares. Oil erased most of its gains from Monday following the devalution by the world's top energy consumer. Other commodities such as copper, aluminum, nickel and zinc also fell.
Almost all of Dow stocks in negative area (25 of 30). Top looser - Apple Inc. (AAPL, -2.69%). Top looser - Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ, 1.23).
All S&P index sectors also in negative area. Top gainer - Basic Materials (-2.1%).
