Treasury Yields Bounce Back From Last Week Losses–Market Talk
Treasury yields recover some of last week’s losses, with the 10-year at 1.785%, up from 1.722% Friday, after rocky overnight trade around the globe that saw stocks falling in Asia and Europe and oil prices breaching $130 a barrel. Bond investors juggle the economic risks stemming from the war in Ukraine and the persistent inflation, ahead of the much expected Fed rates liftoff.
