Treasury Bond Yields: Breakout May Test 5% Again

Many investors seem to think that inflation is under control and interest rates are set to decline.

While this may be the longer term play, the short-term is looking a bit iffy… and active investors best keep an eye on the 10-Year Treasury Bond Yield.

The 10-Year yield has spent the past two months trading between 4% and 4.35%. But recently that trading range has narrowed and bumped up against 4.35 a couple times.

Should rates push higher (ie. breakout), it would likely throw a temporary wrench in the timeline of many economists/investors.
