The stock market fell big time Tuesday as Treasury yields jumped, but investors may be getting it wrong as recent history shows rising rates typically help the stock market.

Using Kensho, CNBC PRO sought to find what might happen if the yield on the 10-year, currently at about 1.75 percent, continues to climb and rises above 2 percent in the next month. The 10-year yield moved higher by 25 basis points in one month on 44 occasions over the last decade, according to Kensho.
