Rising bond yields continue to pressure stocks as traders maintained their revolt against the Federal Reserve, doubting it can get inflation under control. Two key inflation reports are out Wednesday and Thursday. Futures trading point to a 400-point, or 1.3%, fall at the open for the Dow Jones Industrial Average

The benchmark 10-year Treasury yield on Monday topped 3.18%, after going above 3% last week for the first time since late 2018. After the central bank increased interest rates, as expected, by 50 basis points on Wednesday, Chairman Jerome Powell took a more aggressive 75 basis point hike off the table for upcoming meetings. He also said he expects 50 basis point rate increases at the Fed’s June and July meetings. Last Wednesday’s relief rally in stocks, accompanied by a dip in bond yields, was short-lived. Thursday’s whipsaw wiped out and then some the prior session’s stock advance as bond yields soared.

U.S. futures are lower, European stocks are lower and Asian markets ended mostly lower.
