Stocks saw a mixed settlement on Tuesday as investors kept a wary eye on the 10-year Treasury yield and the 2-year Treasury yield, which made a brief inversion earlier in the day. This has been a strong indicator of an upcoming recession in the past. In response, the Dow lost 129 points, after earlier shedding over 700 points, while the S&P 500 finished the day with a muted gain. The Nasdaq, meanwhile, managed to bounce back from its earlier losses, and settled the day with a more than 1% pop, as growth-focused tech stocks gained some steam.
