What was briefly a promising session on Wall Street ultimately ended in the red again. The Dow shed roughly 151 points for its fifth-straight triple-digit loss, while the S&P 500 edged itself deeper into bear market territory for its worst close since January 2021. The only reprieve of the day was the Nasdaq, which settled slightly above breakeven after earlier logging a fresh 19-month low. Fears over a 75 basis-point interest rate hike tomorrow are crippling investor sentiment and driving the 10- and 2-year Treasury yields higher.

Gold Prices Lower as U.S. Dollar Strengthens

Oil prices were lower on on Tuesday, erasing earlier gains following a Bloomberg report that a U.S. Senator could be planning to propose a federal surtax on oil companies in an effort to contain inflation. July-dated crude fell $2, or 1.7%, to settle at $118.93 per barrel.

Gold prices took a hit as well, closing at their lowest level in over a month. Weighing on the precious metal was the U.S. dollar, which continued to gain strength amid rising bond yields and the potential for higher interest rates. As a result, August-dated gold shed $18.30, or 1%, to close at $1,813.50 an ounce.
