The Wall Street selloff was thwarted in the final hour of trading on Tuesday. While the Nasdaq limped away with a triple-digit loss as tech stocks took a hit following Snap's (SNAP) dire financial warning, the Dow turned things around just before the close and finished the session 48 points higher. The S&P 500, meanwhile, crept back towards bear market territory today, after the 10-year Treasury yield fell to 2.73% as recession fears renewed interest in bonds.

In other news, new home sales slid 16% in April to their lowest levels since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the Biden administration revealed plans to ban Russia's government from paying bondholders through U.S. banks, increasing the latter country's risk of outstanding debt default.
