Stocks post another loss as markets worry about higher rates
Stocks fell again on Wall Street, posting their third loss in a row as traders worry that high interest rates are here to stay for a while.
The S&P 500 fell 1.1% Tuesday, bringing its loss in the past three days to 5.1%.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Nasdaq also fell.
Energy companies fell along with sliding crude oil prices. Technology stocks and industrial companies were also weak.
Best Buy was a bright spot, gaining ground after reporting results for its latest quarter that were much better than analysts were expecting. The yield on the 10-year Treasury held steady.
