Wall Street's mixed midday performance turned into a selloff to end the session, as traders grappled with figures that showed no sign of easing inflation in the U.S. The Treasury yield market roared back to life, with the 10-year note adding 11 basis points to rise to 4.707% as fears rise that higher yields are the new norm. The Dow shed more than 170 points and, along with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq, snapped a four-day win streak.

  • Plus, two bear notes to unpack; an UAW strike update; and DAL's post-earnings fall.
