How major US stock indexes fared Tuesday 9/27/2022

The volatile trading came a day after the Dow Jones Industrial Average followed other major U.S. indexes into a bear market. The S&P 500 slipped 0.2%, the Dow fell a bit more and the Nasdaq composite wound up with a gain of 0.2%.
With just a few days left in September, stocks are heading for another losing month as markets fear that the high interest rates being used to fight inflation could help knock the economy into a downturn.
