Yields continue to sink
US 10-year year yields continue to fall.
They’re down another 4.7 bps today and hitting a session low at 1.485%. Aside from a brief spike lower on May 7, that’s the lowest since March 11.
1.48% isn’t much to get paid when tomorrow’s CPI report is expected at 4.7% y/y and +0.4% m/m.
The message is that rising prices will be temporary and that the Fed’s right. The market’s thinking is that slow job growth and perhaps less fiscal stimulus (infrastructure is dying a slow death) will limit the recovery.
It’s not just a US phenomenon though, Italian 10s are at the lowest since April and German 10s are down 3 bps today to -0.256%.
