Treasuries Are Getting Slammed Again -- 10-Year Yield Hits New High Of 2.88%

Right now, the yield on the 10-year Treasury note is up 6 basis points from Friday’s close to 2.88%. 10-year Treasury futures are down 0.3%, trading right near their lows of the day.

There were no economic data releases in the U.S. today, and trading in equity markets is pretty quiet: the S&P 500 is down around 0.1%.
