Wall Street all over the place on Wednesday, with the Dow spending most of the day with shallow losses before settling 39 points lower. The S&P 500, meanwhile, logged a notable drop after Target's (TGT) quarterly results put a damper on recent sentiment. The Nasdaq also plummeted, shedding triple digits and erasing yesterday's win. 

The Fed's next move is still very much in focus, with the CME FedWatch tool showing an 85.4% chance of a 50-basis point rate hike for the December backdrop. Elsewhere, the 10-year Treasury yield continues to cool off, last seen below 3.7% and still inverted from the 2-year Treasury yield.
