U.S. Stocks Up For Third Consecutive Day As Treasury Yields Decline 


On Tuesday, U.S. stocks closed higher, and the substantial drop in U.S. Treasury yields provided support for the stock indices.  

A Federal Reserve official stated that interest rates were already high enough and did not need further increases, further boosting market risk appetite.  

Investors continued to monitor developments in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. 

Amid the escalation of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, investors turned to traditional safe-haven assets such as government bonds, causing bond prices to rise and yields to fall.  

The sharp decline in U.S. Treasury yields supported the U.S. stock market, as the recent rapid increase in U.S. Treasury yields had raised concerns among stock investors. 

The strike by the United Auto Workers Union (UAW) against the three major Detroit automakers entered its fourth week, resulting in losses exceeding $5.5 billion, surpassing any automotive industry strike this century.
