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%.

Safe-play sectors like utilities held up better.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 313 points, or 1.2%, to 26,164. The Nasdaq lost 132 points, or 1.7%, to 7,823.
