The Standard & Poor's 500 index fell five points, or 0.3%, to 2,065. The Nasdaq composite fell four points, or 0.1%, to 5,030.

Energy stocks fell more than the rest of the market Tuesday as the price of crude oil dropped to its lowest level since August. UPS was off 3% after the package delivery company reported revenue that fell short of analysts' estimates. Cummins slumped 9% after the engine maker's earnings results didn't match forecasts. The company also cut its revenue outlook. Bond prices rose. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.03%. (More Dow Jones stories.)
