U.S. stock futures rose Wednesday after the Dow broke a three-day winning streak. The 30-stock average on Tuesday closed down 81 points, or 0.2%, as the market struggled for direction ahead of the long Memorial Day weekend. It was up more than 100 points at session highs. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq, both higher intraday, also ended modestly lower. (CNBC)

The Dow and S&P 500 as of Tuesday were more than 1% away from their May 7 record closes. The Nasdaq was 3.4% away from its April 26 closing record high. The 10-year Treasury yield was steady Wednesday and remained below 1.6% as Federal Reserve officials try to calm inflation fears. (CNBC)

Bitcoin rose on Wednesday, hovering around $40,000 one week after the world's biggest cryptocurrency crashed 30% to around $30,000. Last week's sell-off came after authorities in China and the U.S. moved to tighten regulation and tax compliance on cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin hit an all-time high near $65,000 in April. (CNBC)

Crypto bulls see bitcoin as a store of value like gold. With its declines, many investors are turning back to the precious metal as an inflation hedge, a historically traditional strategy. Gold on Wednesday neared a 4 -month high, edging ever closer to $2,000 per ounce. It touched an all-time high of $2,063 in August 2020. (CNBC)

A slight increase in mortgage rates was enough to tank refinances and bring down overall demand. Total mortgage application volume fell 4.2% last week from the previous week. While the rate increase was small, refinance demand fell 7% for the week. So many borrowers have already refinanced at rates below 3% that there is just not a lot of opportunity left. (CNBC)
