Stock Trader Looking At Multiple Monitors Working In Office

The S&P 500 on Tuesday logged its steepest daily slide in about four months as investors reacted poorly to the prospect of escalating U.S.-China trade tensions.

Check out: MarketWatch’s snapshot of the market

On Monday, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said the U.S. was seeing “an erosion in commitments by China” in recent days and declared tariffs on Chinese imports would rise on Friday to 25% from 10%, reigniting fears that a clash on import duties between the world’s largest economies could hurt global economies. Lighthizer’s comments supported those made by President Donald Trump on Sunday and were viewed as an unexpected development for market participants hoping for a near-term resolution.

Although negotiations with Chinese officials in Washington, including Liu He, are set to take place this week, investors say the latest development on trade injects a fresh dose of uncertainty into the market.

The S&P 500 /zigman2/quotes/210599714/realtime SPX +0.04%  finished off 1.7%, marking its worst decline since March 22, with three dozen companies within the broad-market benchmark closing in positive territory.
