Stocks sink at the open as bond yields surge: Stock market news today

Spread the love

Wall Street stocks fell at the open on Tuesday, as rising Treasury yields piled on pressure and investors got a reminder not to expect a Federal Reserve interest-rate cut any time soon.

The S&P 500 (^GSPC) dropped almost 0.7%, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average (^DJI) about 0.6%. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite (^IXIC) was down over 0.8%, after closing with a gain on Monday.

Hawkish comments by Fed policymakers reminded investors that resilience in the US economy likely means borrowing costs will stay higher for longer. Traders are now pricing in odds of 29% that policymakers will hike rates at their November meeting, compared with 16% a week ago, according to the CME’s FedWatch tool.

That prospect helped 10-year (^TNX) and 30-year Treasury yields (^TYX) rise to 16-year highs on Tuesday — a selloff in bonds that, combined with surges in oil prices and the dollar, has dampened appetite for stocks. The Russell 2000 index of small-caps turned negative for the year on Monday.

Given that, the focus has turned to upcoming economic readings and the start of earnings season next week that could prove positive catalysts. Tuesday brings the latest read on job openings in the JOLTS report for August, a lead-in to the highly anticipated September US jobs report on Friday.
