A flurry of inflation jitters clobbered tech stocks on Monday as the Nasdaq dropped 2.4% for its worst day since March. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note also rose 3 bps to 1.6% – hitting growth names that depend on low rates to fuel their expansions – while the DJIA snapped a 5-session winning streak after pushing above the 35,000 milestone. Things don’t look better this morning, with Nasdaq futures off 1.4% and weighing on the broader market. Contracts linked to the Dow and S&P 500 are 0.6% and 0.9% lower, respectively, while most of Europe and Asia are also in the red.
