Interest Rates

As interest rates rise, investors can't decide whether the bond market move is cause for confidence or concern

  • Treasury yields rose Thursday after hawkish Fed speakers emphasized that more rate hikes are on the way.
  • The 10-year yield jumped to a four-week high of 2.91 percent.
  • The 2-year has also moved higher, and the gap between the 10-year and 2-year yields narrowed to an 11-year low.
  • Even though it has moved higher, the 10-year yield has not moved as aggressively as the 2-year, suggesting to some bond market pros that it reflects the eventual slowing of the economy, inevitable after a Fed rate hiking cycle.
