Market Snapshot: Dow poised to slide, give up chunk of rally

U.S. stock futures fell Wednesday, setting up the Dow to resume its recent slump a day after it rallied.

The stock market is struggling to stabilize after heavy selling on Friday and Monday, and after a wild day of trading Tuesday. Analysts have pinned the drop in part on rising bond yields amid signs of inflation, as they also note that equities were due for a pullback after scoring big gains in January and throughout 2017.
