Updated at 4:10 pm EST

Stocks edged lower Monday, while the dollar extended gains against its global peers, as investors looked to form a path between the impact of rising Treasury yields and a hawkish Federal Reserve against the potential for a near-term boost from the first quarter earnings season.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished down 39 points, or 0.11%, to 34,411, while the S&P 500, which is down 3.04% for the month, dipped 0.02%. The tech-focused Nasdaq was marked 0.14% lower as a benchmark 2-year note yields climbed to 2.47%.
