U.S. stocks fell to a three-week low, while the dollar slumped with Treasury yields as concerns persisted over global growth and the prospects for tax cuts.

The S&P 500 notched its fourth drop in five days, retreating from near session highs in the final half hour of trading on a report that a key Republican opposes the Senate’s latest tax bill. Energy shares led declines as crude continued its slide toward $55 a barrel. A renewed commodities slump overshadowed data showing the U.S. consumer remains robust, while inflation data helped boost bank shares.
