Stocks are ending lower on Wall Street as tensions rachet up again between the U.S. and China just before the two sides are set to meet again to discuss trade.

Technology companies and banks took the worst of the losses Tuesday.

Qualcomm, a chipmaker which relies heavily on sales to China, fell 4.6%. Bank of America gave back 2.4%.
