Ten-year treasury yield hovers around 2%

FXStreet (Mumbai) - The yield on the benchmark 10-yr treasury note in the US witnessed moderate gains in Europe to trade around 2% ahead of the monthly inflation report in the US.

The yield fell below 2% after the Fed March 2016 rate hike bets fell sharply on the back of a weaker-than-expected retail sales report. However, the risk-on in the European equity markets helped the yield enjoy moderate gains.

At the moment, the 10-yr yield is trading around 2.00%, up 2.5 bps on the day. The more policy sensitive 2-yr yield is trading 1.2 basis points higher at 0.573%.

The immediate focus is now on the Us CPI report, which could show the cost of living dipped 0.1% y/y in September.

NY Fed’s Dudley takes the centre stage – TDS

Research Team at TDS, suggest that the main focus today will probably be on the NY Fed’s Dudley and his comments on the Fed’s policy setting will be keenly watched.
