(Newser) – Stocks lost ground on Wall Street as investors fretted about more dire predictions about the global economy, the AP reports. Markets declined steadily Tuesday after the head of the International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde, warned in a speech that the global recovery remains "too slow." The Dow Jones industrial average fell 133 points, or 0.8%, to 17,603. The Standard & Poor's 500 index declined 20 points, or 1%, to 2,045. The Nasdaq composite lost 47 points, or 1%, to 4,843.
