The S&P 500 lost 16.40 points, or 0.7%, to 2,437.06, retreating from its record close set on Monday. The Nasdaq Composite was down 50.98 points, or 0.8%, to 6,188.03.

Among the biggest decliners, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. dropped more than 7% to a three-month low as a sales and margin warning prompted some Wall Street analysts to cut their price targets.
