Major U.S. stock-indexes are lower on Tuesday after weak data from China heightened fears of a slowdown in the world's second-largest economy and its effect on global growth. Data showed that China's manufacturing sector shrank at its fastest pace in three years. The services sector, one of the lone bright spots in the country's economy, also showed signs of cooling. China's official manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) fell to 49.7 in August from 50.0 in July.
All Dow stocks in negative area (30 of 30). Top looser - Exxon Mobil Corporation (XOM, -3.43%).
