Ten-year yields decline in Europe and US

FXStreet (Mumbai) - The concerns of global economic slowdown triggered by the disappointing International Monetary Fund (IMF) forecasts and by the shockingly weak German economic data has pushed the benchmark bond yields in the US and Europe lower.

The ten-year yield in Germany is trading one basis point lower at 0.878, after having hit a record low of 0.859 yesterday. On similar lines, the French ten-year bond yield is trading weak at 1.245, which has been acting as a strong support for the last 7 sessions. Meanwhile, the ten-year yield in the UK is down two basis points to 2.20%.

In the US, the ten-year treasury yield is trading near August lows of 2.3, after hitting a high of 2.348. Interestingly, the two-year treasury yield has gained 1.75% to trade at 0.46. The two year note yield, a barometer of short term expectations, is up indicating that markets are pricing-in an early interest rate hike after the hawkish statement of Fed official Bullard.
