  1. Rising bond yields concern investors

    We saw a negative reversal day on Wednesday and that put some pressure on stocks early on Thursday. After the initial weak open, there was an attempt to push higher, but that failed rather quickly. The selling did not accelerate into the close so the dip buyers were trying to push back.

  5. Earnings season meets the geopolitical

    Stocks opened higher on Friday but the highs of the day were hit at the open, and the indices lost steam throughout the day. The Dow closed with a loss of 123-points and most of the major indices held the losses to under 0.5%, but in comparison to the open, it felt like a bigger hit. Trading volume was the lightest of the year, so the selling certainly wasn't too serious, and there was little upswing toward the close. ...
