10-year Treasury yield surges above 1.50% after 'awful' debt auctionThe benchmark Treasury note jumped above 1.50% on Thursday afternoon after investors showed tepid demand for $62 billion of 7-year notes. The 10-year note yield climbed 15 basis points to 1.54%. Bond prices move in the opposite direction of yields. Peter Boockvar, chief investment officer at the Bleakley Advisory Group, described the 7-year note auction results as "awful," after it tailed by 4.2 basis points, the most in the auction's history. The tail is the gap between the highest yield the Treasury sold in the auction and the yield before the auction began. Analysts have cited the 1.50% level as a key threshold for the bond market that could portend trouble for U.S. equities.

Pot stocks ETF tumbles 20% and faces its worst daily drop in its history as Cannabis trade flames outOne of the most popular ways to gain exposure to the cannabis industry was facing the worst single-day decline since it was created back in 2015, according to Dow Jones Market Data. The ETFMG Alternative Harvest ETF on Thursday was down more than 20% and on track to snap a three-day win streak as it heads to its worst day since inception, Dec. 3 of 2015. Stunningly, the ETF was still nursing an 11% gain for the week and an 81% gain in the year to date, highlighting the nearly unfettered appetite for pot stocks that has gripped the market in recent days. The decline for the popular ETF comes as Cannabis shares were tumbling sharply across the board Thursday, with many of the sector's best performers a day earlier surrendering all those gains. Tilray Inc. , a recent market darling, was last down 42%, while Aphria Inc. , with which it is merging, was down over 30%. Pot stocks have been reignited on bullish bets for positive political developments and a better legal landscape under President Joe Biden. Meanwhile, the broader market was seeing tepid gains, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average was off 0.2%, the S&P 500 index trading flat and the Nasdaq Composite Index gaining a modest 0.3% on the session.

GameStop's stock is surging again, putting it on track for its best month everShares of GameStop Corp. on Friday afternoon were extending a recent surge, putting the videogame retailer on track for its best monthly gain, up over 220%, in its history. The historic surge in shares of the company, which went public in 2002, comes as an army of traders on a popular social platform Reddit have been striving to drive values higher, according to a Bloomberg report, even as short seller Citron Research has attempted to make a case why valuations for GameStop make it a sell rather than a buy. However, a planned livestream hosted by Citron, intended for Wednesday originally, was canceled, and Citron has complained about "hacking" of its livestream events and recently. A report in referred to Citron's technical issues as a backlash from a Reddit community that is rabidly bullish on GameStop. Shares of GameStop began a parabolic rise last week, and the upsurge was attributed by some to a short squeeze, where investors who are betting that the stock price will fall in value are forced to buy shares they have borrowed in their bearish bets, which can have the effect of amplifying a stock's rise. Market participants also see the rally in GameStop as evidence of a bubble forming in segments of the market, with the Federal Reserve and government providing liquidity and support for the COVID-19-stricken financial market and maintaining interest rates at or near 0% -- a recipe that bears have said has encouraged speculative investments. GameStop has had a powerful run due to lockdowns meant to limit the COVID spread, with more people playing videogames. Its surge in January surpasses its 66% surge in August, FactSet data show.
