Stock-market rally vaporizes as 10-year yield climbs to 2.95%, dollar strengthens
An afternoon rally for the Dow Jones Industrial Average melted on Wednesday as Wall Street struggled to interpret minutes from the Federal Reserve's January meeting. The Dow was down 133 points, or 0.5%, at 24,831, eroding what had been a more than 300-point rally in blue chips in the wake of the release of minutes at 2 p.m. Eastern Time. The S&P 500 index was off by 11 points, or 0.4% at 2,706, but had been up by 1.2% earlier in the session, while the Nasdaq Composite Index shed 0.1% at 7,226. A deflation of the brisker buying sentiment in stocks follows meeting minutes from the late-January gathering of the Federal Open Market Committee was attributed partly to a climb in yields for the 10-year Treasury note to a session high, and a four-year peak, at 2.95%. A popular dollar gauge, as measured by the ICE U.S. Dollar Index , also picked up steam up 0.4% at 90.06. Minutes from the Jan. 30-31 FOMC meeting showed that officials saw a stronger economy than at the end of 2017 and that more rate hikes were in the offing. The strengthening "increased the likelihood that a gradual upward trajectory of the federal funds rate would be appropriate." To convey this message, officials altered their statement to point to "further gradual increases," according to the minutes. However, the Fed minutes don't incorporate recent signs of rapidly rising inflation, which could make the Fed more inclined to hike rates faster than the three that Wall Street is forecasting, some market participants speculated.

Investors in Microsoft Corporation Stock Shouldn't Forget About LinkedIn

By most people's estimation, they were pretty darn good, yet Microsoft stock barely moved. In the three weeks since, the MSFT stock price has lost about $3, tempting some experts to call it a buy including InvestorPlace contributor Vince Martin.
