Monday’s Factors and Events
U.S. stocks finished almost 300 points higher on Friday but still registered steep losses for the week as investors fretted over rising interest rates. The Dow and S&P 500 finished the previous trading week down more than 4 percent, while the Nasdaq posted a 3.7 percent weekly loss.
Investors blamed rapidly rising interest rates, concerns about technology stock valuations and a possible slowdown in the global economy for the selling. The 10-year Treasury yield hit a seven-year high of 3.26 percent last week.
