TheStreet's founder and Action Alerts PLUS Portfolio Manager Jim Cramer said the potential for trade tariffs and investor obsession over the 10-Year Treasury yield flirting with 3% is preventing the stock market from moving higher.

Yields on the 10-Year yield briefly hit 3% on Tuesday before moving below that threshold.
