10-Year Treasury Yields – Two Long-Term Charts As Of November 21, 2016

I have written extensively about U.S. interest rates and their importance.  Rising interest rates have substantial ramifications for many aspects of the current-day economy.  My commentaries with regard to interest rates and the bond bubble are largely found under the “bond bubble” tag.   From an intervention perspective commentary is found under the “Intervention” category.

Lately interest rates, including the 10-Year Treasury yield, have been sharply increasing.  An excerpt from the November 18, 2016 Bloomberg article titled “Bond Traders Sound Alarm Amid Worst Rout Since 2001:”

The Treasury 10-year note yield rose 58 basis points over the past two weeks, or 0.58 percentage point, to 2.35 percent, according to Bloomberg Bond Trader data. It was the biggest climb for a similar period since 2001.

On Tuesday (July 5, 2016) the yield on the 10-Year Treasury closed at 1.367%, after reaching an intraday yield of 1.357%.

An excerpt from the Wall Street Journal article of July 6, 2016, titled “Are Treasuries Headed for 1%?  New Lows in a 35-Year Downtrend“:

The yield on the benchmark 10-year U.S. Treasury note fell to its lowest level ever Tuesday, a new milestone in a three-decade downward run that even veteran traders never thought would go so far or last so long.

The yield closed below 1.4% for the first time at 1.367%, surpassing the previous record low set four years ago, according to data going back to 1977.
