Wall Street logged its worst close of 2022, after all three benchmarks earlier hit 52-week lows. The 10-year Treasury yield once again soared to its highest level since 2018, while rising interest rates -- amid increasing recession fears -- dented major technology names as well as consumer stocks.

Fresh off its sixth-straight weekly loss, the Dow today logged its third-consecutive daily drop after falling more than 650 points. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 plunged below 4,000 for the first time in over a year, closing deep in the red alongside the tech-laden Nasdaq. Each also scored their third-straight session of losses, while the Cboe Market Volatility Index (VIX) finished at its highest level since March 8.
