Short-Term Government Bonds Suggesting Fed Funds Peak!

In 2022, investors watched the Federal Reserve hike interest rates very quickly. And this in turn saw bond yields move much higher.

Now in 2023, bond yields are beginning to moderate and pull back. We discussed why the odds favored a pullback on 10-year bond yields yesterday.

Today, we look at the “monthly” chart of the 2-year bond yield versus the Fed Funds rate. And we turn to Joe Friday for “The facts, Ma’am. Just the facts.”

Taken together, 2-year yields look to be suggesting a peak in fed funds has happened again. Stay tuned!
