Stocks bounced and Treasury yields retreated Thursday after a third weak monthly retail sales report boosted hopes for a less aggressive Fed and the dollar took a break from its rapid run.

A stronger dollar adds to fears that already-lowered earnings forecasts would fall further, as analysts reduce the expected contribution from foreign sales.
