NEW YORK, February 22 (Reuters). The S&P 500 and Nasdaq closed lower on Monday, as rising bond yields weighed down on large growth stocks again over fears of a revival in inflation.
The Dow Jones index rose 0.09% to 31,521.69. The S & P-500, on the other hand, lost 0.76% to 3876.84 and the Nasdaq Composite 2.45% to 13,534.50 points, which was influenced by the decline in tech stocks.
Equities are suffering again from the rise in bond yields as there are concerns that a normalization of economic life could lead to an uncontrolled spike in inflation and a tightening of monetary policy by central banks.
The 10-year-old American hit an annual high of 1.394% in the meeting, before dropping to around 1.37% returned.

“This is a slight correction, largely because stocks are overheating a bit. Suddenly there are people making a mountain of nothing, ”said Brian Reynolds, chief market strategist at Reynolds Strategy.
