Stocks Struggle to Small Gains Through Listless Session

Like Chinese water torture, the slow drip... drip... drip... of the stock market's dips and ascents had Wall Street hoping for better on Tuesday, but, after an early rally erased opening losses, stocks lost momentum into the close, finishing with insignificant gains.

While January was kind to investors of all stripes, February has been rude, sending stocks briefly into correction territory and still hovering just above recent lows.
