Stocks have shifted more to the downside and so have yields. Remember today is a triple witching where options and indices expire. Add to that, the volatility from the financial anxiety is helping to pressure equities. However some big shares like Microsoft are still higher (about 1.9%). Nvidia which has been surging this week is also up by 2.2%.
