Rising Treasury Yields Pull Stocks Lower

Stocks, bonds and precious metals retreated Monday, reversing course after markets last week extended a monthlong stretch of gains. 

Higher bond yields weighed on shares of large technology companies, pressuring the broader stock market. The tech-focused Nasdaq Composite lost 0.8%, and the benchmark S&P 500 dropped 0.5%. The Dow industrials slipped 0.1%, or 41 points, snapping a four-day win streak.
