Stock futures dipped Friday morning as traders focused on a recent run higher in the 10-year Treasury yield. Futures tied to the Dow Jones Industrial Average were down 88 points, or 0.3%. S&P 500 futures fell 0.3%, while Nasdaq 100 futures dropped about 0.4%.
The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury crossed 5% for the first time in 16 years. The 10-year yield hit 5.001% around 5 p.m. ET on Thursday, the first time it has traded above that level since July 20, 2007 — when it yielded as high as 5.029%. It was last trading at 4.939%.
Shares of SolarEdge tumbled more than 28% after the company trimmed its third-quarter revenue guidance. Knight-Swift Transportation rallied more than 15% after beating estimates in the third quarter on both lines.
The action follows a volatile day for stocks. The 30-stock Dow shed 250.91 points, or 0.75%, while the S&P 500 lost 0.85%. The Nasdaq Composite slid nearly 1%.
Stocks were rattled Thursday after Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said inflation remains too high and lower economic growth will likely be needed to bring it down. Powell also said he doesn’t think rates are too high now.
“While the path is likely to be bumpy and take some time, my colleagues and I are united in our commitment to bringing inflation down sustainably to 2 percent,” he added.
Though Powell did not commit to a path forward for rates at his speaking engagement, the market seems to think the central bank will skip a hike in November. Fed fund futures pricing reflects a nearly 99% likelihood that the central bank will keep rates the same at the conclusion of its November meeting, according to the CME FedWatch Tool.
The largest American banks have been quietly laying off workers all year — and some of the deepest cuts are yet to come. Even as the economy has surprised forecasters with its resilience, lenders have cut headcount or announced plans to do so, with the key exception being JPMorgan Chase, the biggest and most profitable U.S. bank.
Pressured by the impact of higher interest rates on the mortgage business, Wall Street deal-making and funding costs, the next five largest U.S. banks have cut a combined 20,000 positions so far this year, according to company filings.
