Breaking: Dow Futures Dive 200 Points Amid Soaring 10-Year Treasury Yields
23 Oct 2023
Dow futures tumbled 200 points on Monday as 10-year Treasury yields topped 5%.
Stock futures declined on Monday as Treasury yields surged, and traders looked ahead to the release of earnings reports from major tech companies.
The Dow Jones dropped 0.4%.
The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note increased by approximately 9 basis points, surpassing the crucial 5% threshold. Yields for the 2-year note and 30-year bond also rose.
The rapid ascent in yields, noted Canaccord Genuity Group’s chief market strategist Tony Dwyer, could intensify the already weakening economic outlook, albeit masked by higher rates.
The week is set to see an influx of earnings reports, particularly from tech giants such as Alphabet, Amazon, Meta, and Microsoft, which are expected to provide critical insights for the stock market.
In addition to earnings, traders are preparing for the release of significant economic data this week, including the third-quarter advance report for U.S. gross domestic product on Thursday and the release of the personal consumption expenditure, a gauge of inflation, on Friday. Investors are concerned that if these reports surpass expectations, the possibility of another rate hike this year cannot be entirely ruled out.
