Stocks set to decline with manufacturing, inflation data on tap


U.S. stocks are set to open lower Tuesday morning, at least that's the indication ahead of some key economic data, including inflation and manufacturing, to be reported before the opening bell. The Federal Open Market Committee also begins its two-day policy meeting.

Meanwhile, Wells Fargo joined Citigroup and repaid its bailout fund.
