After a volatile day of trading, stocks pulled back from their midday gains to finish firmly in the red. Both the Dow and S&P 500 secured their sixth day of losses in the last seven sessions, while the Nasdaq marked its seventh-consecutive loss as tech slipped, marking its longest losing streak since 2016. Rising bond yields also weighed heavy.

In today's economic data, the ISM services purchasing managers' index (PMI) came in at a stronger-than-expected 56.9% in August, showing the services sector expanded at a faster rate than expected. However, the U.S. Services PMI Business Activity Index fell to 43.7 in August -- its lowest level since May 2020.
