Major U.S. stock-indexes lower on Tuesday, failing to sustain yet another rally in what has been a turbulent year so far, as prices of oil and other commodities resumed their declines. Stocks have moved in tandem with volatile oil prices, which are hovering near multi-year lows, as investors see tepid demand for energy as a sign of broader global economic weakness.
