How the major stock indexes fared on Tuesday

The stock market showed signs of stability Tuesday as major indexes held on to most of their rebound from last week's big drop. Analysts said it was reassuring that the market kept the bulk of its gains from Monday, when the Dow Jones industrial average soared 405 points in response to the creation of a bailout fund for weak countries like Greece. Tuesday's trading signaled that the previous day's big move wasn't solely driven by euphoria.
