Ukraine Tensions Still On Investors Minds

After two sessions progressing, US Markets ended slightly lower on Tuesday in the absence of positive developments on geopolitical issues and the sharp decline in the ZEW index.

The Dow was down around 0.1% to 16,560.5, while the Nasdaq Composite lost again almost 0.3% to 4,389.2 and the S&P 500, nearly 0.2% to 1933.

In addition to the continuing political crisis in Iraq, traders are concerned by the sending of Russian humanitarian aid via a convoy to Ukraine, a shipment that raised concern among Westerners as pretext for armed intervention.

The weakness of the day could also be attributed to a drop eighth consecutive monthly indicator of German investor sentiment.
