    The S&P 500 traded in a narrow range from the opening bell and through the lunch hour. A weak early afternoon rally took the index to its 0.18% intraday high, but it was followed by a fairly rapid selloff to the -0.22% intraday low. Some buying in the final hour trimmed the loss to a fractional -0.06% close, snapping a string of three record closes.

    The official yield on the 10-year note closed at 2.27%, up four bps from the previous close.

    Here is a 15-minute chart of the past five sessions.

    Volume was a bit higher than during the previous three record-setting sessions but remains a tad on the light side.
