Wall Street started June off on the wrong foot, with all three major benchmarks settling lower, as traders remain wary of the state of the economy. A sharp drop in job openings in April, coupled with JPMorgan (JPM) CEO Jamie Dimon's predictions of an economic "hurricane," weighed on investor sentiment all day. In turn, the Dow logged a 177-point drop, but did manage to erase some steeper afternoon losses. Both the S&P 500 and Nasdaq settled lower for the second-straight day as well, as a higher 10-year Treasury yield hit the tech sector.

Oil Settles Higher Ahead of OPEC+ Meeting

Easing Covid-19 restrictions in China helped oil futures settle higher on Wednesday, amid higher demand hopes. Investors were also eyeing Thursday's Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and their allies (OPEC+) meeting, following reports that the group could exempt Russia from production targets. In turn, July-dated crude rose 59 cents, or 0.5%, to close at $115.26 per barrel.

Gold prices finished marginally higher as well, brushing off rising Treasury yields and a stronger U.S. dollar. Though it lagged behind platinum and silver, the yellow metal still benefited from the broad-market selloff. August-dated gold added 30 cents to settle at $1,843.70 an ounce.
