Stocks New York end: Dow worries about inflation - Nasdaq stable

NEW YORK (dpa-AFX) - Fears of inflation and interest rates drove investors on Wall Street to flight on Tuesday. Rising raw material prices as well as the upcoming announcement of current price data from the United States on Wednesday caused increasing nervousness. The shares on the technology exchange Nasdaq, however, were able to recover from a weaker start to trading.

The Dow Jones Industrial , der tags zuvor erstmals über die Marke von 35 000 Punkten auf ein weiteres Rekordhoch gestiegen war, schloss am Dienstag mit einem Minus von 1,36 Prozent tiefer bei 34 269,16 Punkten. Der marktbreite S&P 500 lost 0,87 percent to 4152,10 points. The tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 dropped 0,06 percent to 13 points after dropping 351,27 percent at the start of the week.
