U.S. markets tumble as increasing yields weigh on technology shares
On Tuesday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 34,299.53, down 569.84 points from Monday’s close of 34,869.37. Likewise, the Nasdaq Composite Index closed at 14,546.68, down 423.29 points or 2.83% from the previous close of 14,969.97.
Tech shares tumbled as the 10-year and 30-year Treasury constant maturity rates climbed close to three-month highs as investors monitored the Federal Reserve’s announcement that it will soon taper bond purchases.

Sanctuary Wealth Chief Investment Officer Jeff Kilburg said in a note that the “selling pressure” in technology shares follows a pattern from last year, in which increasing interest rates led to the “reflation and rotation trade” away from technology stocks.”
West Texas Intermediate crude prices topped $70 on Sept. 20, close to the three-year high of approximately $75 in October 2018.
