(Newser) – Stocks ended modestly lower on Wall Street, extending a losing streak to a fourth day, the AP reports. Traders were worrying about the possibility that Britain would decide next week to leave the European Union. Credit card companies Tuesday fell after Synchrony Financial, the country's largest issuer of store brand cards, said more of its customers were falling behind on their payments. Synchrony plunged 13%. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 57 points, or 0.3%, to 17,674. The Standard & Poor's 500 index lost 3 points, or 0.2%, to 2,075. The Nasdaq composite declined 4 points, or 0.1%, to 4,843.
