Daily Stock Pick: October 7th, 2022

Stocks fell as Treasury yield rates rose after the September jobs report showed continued strength in employment, despite the Fed’s attempts to stave off inflation by slowing the economy with rate hikes.  The major indices were lower in early trading after a negative previous session but were still on track for their best week since June, with gains of around 4% since Monday.
