Recession warning signs sour equity investors' mood

(Updates story with closing prices.)

U.S. stocks suffered a beating Wednesday, with all but three members of the S&P 500 showing declines, after bond investors piled into Treasurys, causing the yield curve to invert.

Bond investors' desire to lock in longer-term interest streams prompted the yield on 10-year Treasury notes to dip below the yield of two-year U.S. Treasury notes on Wednesday. This was the first time yields on two-year and 10-year notes inverted (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/2-year10-year-treasury-yield-curve-inverts-triggering-bond-market-recession-indicator-2019-08-14) since 2007.

Weak economic figures out of Europe (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/what-germanys-dismal-gdp-number-really-means-for-europe-2019-08-14) and slowing industrial output in China (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/chinas-industrial-output-growth-slows-in-july-2019-08-13)added to the negative tone of trading.

Before getting to tables of stock prices, here's more on the inverted yield curve:
