U.S. Bond Yields Rollercoaster
March 28, 2019

The 10 Year U.S. Treasury (US10Y) came up from the 2.37% it closed at yesterday to 2.39%, ending the 6-day slide.

“Treasuries rallied after the Fed signaled it was done raising interest rates for the moment, driving yields on 10-year notes down to levels last seen in 2017. That forced two sets of traders — those who had bought mortgage bonds and those who had bet markets would remain calm — to turn to derivatives markets to tweak their portfolios or stanch their losses. They snapped up positions in interest-rate swaps, pushing Treasury yields down even more.” – Bloomberg.com (3/26/2019)
