Rising Treasury Yields Weigh On Wall Street

Stocks fell across the board Wednesday, weighed down by a red-hot 10-year Treasury note that finished above 4.6% at four-week highs. Wall Street also unpacked the Fed's Beige Book, which showed the U.S. economy experienced uneven growth over the last six weeks while higher prices scared off consumers. The Dow fell 411 points while the Nasdaq turned in its worst single-session digit drop since April 30.
