From the desk of Willie Delwiche.
While the Fed may be newly focused on inflation, the bond market does not appear to be similarly inclined. The yield on 30-year Treasury bonds this week has undercut its summer lows near 1.80% and the 10-year t-Note yield has dropped below the 1.40% level that has been important in the past. Moreover, the yield spread between 2’s and 10’s has dropped to its lowest level of the year. This drop in yields (reflecting strength in bonds) is not inconsistent with deteriorating equity market conditions seen beneath the surface (as well as increasingly at the index level). Coming about always carries risks, and the Fed is trying to change course in choppy waters.Lost Password?
