Heads up: it’s been a crazy week for U.S. Treasuries – the bonds have sold off substantially since Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke’s Wednesday press conference – and yields are rising again today.
Right now, the yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury note is 2.45%, 4 basis points higher from yesterday’s close.
Before Bernanke, it was at 2.21%.
Bonds have really started sliding in the last hour or so. The chart below shows 10-year Treasury futures this morning.
