Among the 11 major S&P 500 sectors, the Financials Index is up 0.7% as the top-performer after the opening bell supported by a more-than-6% increase in the benchmark 10-year US Treasury bond yield. The Energy Index is also posting strong gains on the back of a 2% rise in crude oil prices.

On the other hand, the Technology and the Communication Services indexes both lose around 1% in the early trade and weighing on tech-sensitive Nasdaq.
