Technology is trying to recover some ground after following yesterday’s sharp selloff. Several tech stocks continue their slide with Tesla (TSLA) and Netflix (NFLX) down about 2% each; however, other mega-cap tech stocks are rising with Meta Platforms (FB) and Google (GOOGL) up 3.3% and 1%, respectively.

Rates continue to rise, with the 10-year yield hitting 1.74% during early afternoon. The 10-year real yield (adjusted for inflation) sits at -0.77%, having moved quickly from below -1%.

Energy holds the lead again in the S&P 500, extending this week’s gains to 8.5%. Crude oil is up 1.8% at $79.30 driven by protests in OPEC member Kazakhstan, and supply outages in Libya.
