Major U.S. stock-indexes fell on Tuesday as Apple's shares remained under pressure, hitting their lowest in more than six months, and investors digested earnings reports from a host of companies. While there was no clear trigger for the selloff, traders said worries over China slowdown. With a bulk of the S&P 500 companies having reported results, investors are taking to the sidelines ahead of Friday's monthly jobs data.
