Wall Street pivoted higher Monday, as investors brushed off rising Treasury yields ahead of highly-anticipated corporate earnings results. The Dow closed up shop with a 314-point win, the Nasdaq also rose triple digits, and the S&P 500 settled just shy of the 4,400 level. Meanwhile the Cboe Volatility Index (VIX), a common "fear gauge" for investors, recorded its biggest single-session percentage drop since June.
