All good things must come to an end, including the stock market's recent rally. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq today snapped their best win streaks in about two years, which reached eight-straight positive sessions for the former, and nine for the latter. The Dow shed 220 points, meanwhile, after yesterday putting an end to its own string of wins.

Remarks from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell weighed on the market, after he demonstrated uncertainty over whether or not the central bank has done enough to contain inflation, with rising Treasury yields adding insult to injury. Elsewhere, the Cboe Volatility Index (VIX) snapped an eight-day skid -- its longest losing streak since 2015.
