Wall Street slid on Tuesday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 in loss territory for a second day and the Nasdaq Composite halting a seven-day winning streak as declines in tech and energy stocks along with turmoil in President Donald Trump's administration dented sentiment.

Nearly all of the S&P's sectors were in the red heading into the closing bell, with tech, financials and energy all retreating more than 1%. Another day of triple-digit losses for the Dow saw more than two thirds of the blue chips decline.
