The DJIA Index fell 85 points Tuesday, retreating from record territory. The cause? Lower than expected auto sales and mixed retail earnings reports.
The Nasdaq dipped back below the 5,000 level, giving up most of Monday's gains. The tech-heavy index was pulled down by Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) and Cisco Systems (Nasdaq: CSCO), which fell 1.3% and 2.15% on the day, respectively.
