A day of up-and-down trading on Wall Street ended with stocks posting slight declines Tuesday, handing the market its second straight loss.

Losses in industrial, technology and financial stocks outweighed gains in communications companies and retailers. Mixed data on new U.S. home sales pulled homebuilder stocks lower.
