Dow on the verge of snapping a 3-day rally as tech slumps, investors wait for Powell testimony

U.S. stocks on Tuesday saw a downbeat open, with technology and internet shares weighing on the broader market, ahead of Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell’s Senate testimony.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average 50 points, 0.2%, at 25,013, the S&P 500 index slipped 0.2% at 2,792, on the verge of halting a string of gains for the benchmark at three, while the Nasdaq Composite Index retreated by 0.5% at 7,762.
