    U.S. stocks ended lower on Tuesday after political developments in Greece fanned concerns about Europe's fiscal health, but a late rally helped indexes cut losses to close well above lows

    The S&P 500 fell through support at 1,350 to reach levels not seen since early March, but buyers emerged to support stocks
