- The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.11 percent
- The Nasdaq is down 0.04 percent
- Standard & Poor’s 500 fell 0.14 percent

Robinhood is up again after a sharp fall
On Tuesday, Robinhood and Zoom were among the companies that saw the biggest moves.
Robinhood was recently kicked out in severe weather after Paypal announced that it was considering launching a separate stock trading platform.
Paypal is already big on e-commerce and payment solutions, and is one of the companies Elon Musk co-founded two decades ago.
Having a PayPal stock trading platform could mean tougher competition for Robinhood, among others.
Just before closing time on Monday night, Robinhood got another shot in the arc, when the head of Finanstilsynet USA said Barrons news site It is up to you to consider whether it is illegal to charge an order flow fee.
A large portion of Robinhood’s income is precisely the amount they pay to pass stock trades to market makers who execute the trades themselves.
Robinhood closed on Tuesday with a 1.5 percent increase, offsetting a drop of more than seven percent on Monday.
