Dow Trims Triple-Digit Losses, Still Settles Lower

The Dow pared a triple-digit loss but still settled slightly below breakeven, while both the S&P 500 and Nasdaq finished higher. A handful of Big Tech stocks were notably lower today, including chip giant Nvidia (NVDA), which finished the day down 2%.
