Spiking bond yields slam stock market winning streak

E-mini S&P 500 Index

The Dow Jones industrial average lost 0.9%.

The index also snapped an eight-day winning streak. The S&P 500 closed at 2,711.45 for a loss of -18.68 points or -0.68%. The Nasdaq composite dropped 78 points, or 1.1 percent, to 7,332.

France's CAC 40 inched up 0.2 percent to 5,548, while Britain's FTSE 100 rose by the same rate to 7,726. The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks gave up 1 point, or 0.1 percent, to 1,598. The broad sell-off followed a slide in bond prices, which drove up yields, paving the way for higher borrowing costs on mortgages and other loans.

The prospect of higher mortgage rates weighed on home builders, while the rise in bond yields sent stocks that pay high dividends lower. USA ambassador to China Terry Branstad said the two countries remain "very far apart" regarding a tariff resolution, after which White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow told Politico he supports efforts to reach an agreement. Smaller rival Lowe's Companies Inc (LOW.N) was down 1.0 percent.

Treasury yields surged higher after April retail sales came in as expected with a 0.3% month-over-month increase, but the March increase was revised higher to 0.8% from 0.6%, and core retail sales jumped 0.4%.

Stocks are opening moderately higher on Wall Street, led by gains in technology, health care and energy companies.
