Yields continued to rise as the U.S. 10-year touched nearly 4.8% on Tuesday. This continued to pressure stocks as the S&P closed -1.37%, the Nasdaq -1.87% to barely stay above 13,000, and the Dow -1.29% to hover around 33,000.
The TSX extended losses by 0.81% as the index closed a hair above 19,000. There was a little more green on trader’s screens than Monday, but most sectors remained down.
