After Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell sparked stimulus hopes yesterday in calling for additional financial aid, stocks dropped off a cliff after U.S. President Donald Trump announced that second stimulus negotiations will be postponed until after the November election. All three major inboxes closed out Tuesday in the red, with pressure from Big Tech stocks and stimulus-dependent airline names.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJI - 27,772.76) fell 375.9 points on Tuesday. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 Index (SPX - 3,360.97) fell 47.7 points for the day yesterday, and the Nasdaq Composite (IXIC - 11,154.60) dropped 177.9 points. The Cboe Volatility Index (VIX - 29.48) tacked on 1.5 points for the day for its sixth-straight win.
