All good things must come to an end. Wall Street's seemingly endless rally finally took a breather today, as stocks turned sharply lower in the afternoon. Both the Dow and Nasdaq snapped their nine-day win streaks with steep triple-digit losses, with the blue-chip index ending its run of record closes. The S&P 500 finished firmly in the red as well, but remains a chip shot from its all-time highs. Elsewhere, U.S. treasury yields are still dropping, following hopeful inflation data out of the U.K.
