Key US Treasury Yields Lowest Since December 2017


FLASH: The Benchmark 10-year Treasury yields fell to their lowest levels since December 2017 Monday as investors evaluated last week’s Dovish pivot by the Fed.

Last Wednesday the FOMC stunned investors by abandoning projections for any interest rate hikes this year and saying it would halt the steady decline of its balance sheet in September.

The yield curve inverted Friday after disappointing manufacturing data in the United States and Germany further raised concerns about the slowing global economy.

Monday’s action it is a follow through trade from last week.

Yield Check

  • 2-yr: -7 bps to 2.25%
  • 3-yr: -6 bps to 2.19%
  • 5-yr: -5 bps to 2.20%
  • 10-yr: -4 bps to 2.42%
  • 30-yr: -2 bps to 2.87%

Weaker equity markets and concerns about weakening international growth supported the trade. This is a disproportionately large rally given what we are seeing going on in risk assets.
