Today’s Research Reports on Trending Tickers: Chesapeake Energy and Southwestern Energy

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / February 9, 2018 / U.S. markets continued to plunge alongside rising interest rates on Thursday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 4.15 percent to close at 23,860.46, while the S&P 500 Index fell 3.75 percent to close at 2,581.00. The Dow Jones is currently on pace to post its largest weekly decline since October of 2008. The Nasdaq Composite Index declined 3.90 percent to close at 6,777.16. The yield on the benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury note touched a high of 2.88 percent before settling to close at 2.848 percent on Thursday.

"The big news revolves around bond yields continuing their recent ascent," said Mark Newton, managing member at Newton Advisors, according to CNBC. "Getting over 3.05 percent would indeed break the 30-year downtrend and be very important to suggesting yields should begin a long-term trend higher."
