The financial sector suffered broad losses Thursday, as support from a big jump in Treasury yields wasn't enough to offset the broader-market selloff. The SPDR Financial Select Sector ETF fell 1.0% in afternoon trading, to pull back from Wednesday's record close, with 56 of its 65 equity components losing ground. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 slumped 1.9%. Among the financial ETF's (XLF) more-active components, shares of Bank of America Corp. slumped 0.7%, Citigroup Inc. shed 0.8%, Wells Fargo & Co. lost 1.4% and J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. slid 0.9%. Meanwhile, the yield on 10-year Treasury note jumped 11.0 basis points toward a one-year high of 1.499%.

Over the past three months, the XLF has gained 16.3%, while the 10-year Treasury yield has climbed by 62.1 basis points and the S&P 500 has gained 6.0%.
