Stocks drifted to a mixed close on Wall Street, as steadying Treasury yields help calm the market following its worst tumble in months.
The S&P 500 slipped 0.2 percent Tuesday. It’s coming off Monday’s 2.1 percent drop, which came on the heels of its first losing week in the last five.
Volatility has returned to Wall Street following what had been a strong summer as worries rise about how aggressively the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates. Recent comments from Fed officials have cooled hopes for a less forceful Fed. Yields fell Tuesday following some weaker-than-forecast readings on the economy.
