U.S. stocks showed no signs of improvement after a rough day Monday.
The Dow dropped more than 500 points, and the S&P 500 lost more than 2 percent, hitting a 14-month low.
Investors appear to have multiple concerns about the economy right now.
Low oil prices, trade tensions with China and the possibility of a government shutdown have also contributed to recent market volatility.
While no one can predict exactly when a recession will happen, analysts suggest it might be likely to happen within the next two years.
