NEW YORK (Reuters) – Wall Street’s three major indexes fell slightly after a choppy session on Tuesday as investors eyed mixed economic data and corporate news and many stayed on the sidelines waiting for clarity on issues such as U.S.-China trade talks.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 34.44 points, or 0.13 percent, to 26,057.51, the S&P 500 lost 2.29 points, or 0.08 percent, to 2,793.82 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 5.16 points, or 0.07 percent, to 7,549.30.
