US stocks fell for a fourth day as prospects for policy tightening and geopolitical risks weighed on investor sentiment. A gauge of dollar strength rose to the highest level this month.

The Nasdaq 100 underperformed, with semiconductors among the worst performers after Washington’s move to further restrict China’s access to US technology added to signs of slowing chip demand worldwide.
