(CNBC) — The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose for the first time in three days on Monday, but its gains were kept in check as investors continued to fret over a sharp rise in interest rates.

The 30-stock index climbed 39.73 points to 26,486.78, led by gains in Walgreens Boots Alliance. The S&P 500, however, closed just below breakeven at 2,884.43 to post a three-day losing streak. The Nasdaq Composite also pulled back 0.7 percent to 7,735.95, posting its third straight losing session, as large-cap tech shares fell.

Shares of Amazon fell 1.3 percent while Netflix pulled back 0.6 percent. Apple also dipped 0.2 percent.
