U.S. stocks were marginally lower on Wednesday.  The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 0.57%, while the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite were lower by 0.21% and 0.26%, respectively, after all three of the major averages closed just below all-time highs the day before. The yield on the 10-year note closed at 1.61%, just below its highest point since May, due to concerns that the Federal Reserve could raise rates sooner than expected to slow inflation. The 10 - year note yield got as high as 1.64% in the morning.
