The close: Stocks snap three-day winning streak as new COVID-19 cases surge in certain states
The S&P 500 closed lower on Wednesday as news of spiking pandemic data and the prospect of a new round of economic lockdowns dampened investor optimism over signs of economic recovery. Canada’s TSX also fell, snapping a three-day winning streak, pressured in particular by falling stock prices in the energy sector.
 
The Dow reversed earlier gains to end lower as well, but tech shares led the Nasdaq to a modest gain.
 
Worries over a resurgence in the pandemic’s spread persisted, as new coronavirus cases hit a record in Oklahoma just days before President Donald Trump’s expected campaign rally in Tulsa.
 
The numbers of new cases are rising sharply in about six U.S. states, according to a Reuters analysis, and authorities in Beijing have ramped up mobility restrictions in their efforts to contain a new COVID-19 outbreak.
