The roller coaster ride known as the Dow Jones Industrial Average had a positive day on Tuesday, as pharmaceutical companies and some retailers led a small rally.

The Dow took back more than one third of its Monday losses, finishing the day up more than 1,000 points. The Dow lost a record-breaking 3,000 points on Monday, marking the largest one-day point drop in the market's history.
