#Rally pauses as investors weigh risks #markets #stocks #trading #Nasdaq

Stocks fell on Tuesday morning as investors are assessing how surging borrowing costs could dent growth prospects and pressure valuation multiples. The dollar index (DXY) surged to a 5-day high, while both Stoxx50 and Nasdaq (futures) are trading 0.5% lower. Investors are reluctant to take on risk, but a more investor-friendly inflation report this Friday could help boost market sentiment. In the meantime, a speedier loosening of restrictions in China may help markets rebound.
