Yields are continuing to push higher on the week with 2-year Treasury yields hitting 3.97% – its highest since November 2007. The dollar didn’t take much cue from bonds yesterday but is looking steadier so far today with USD/JPY also up 0.3% to 143.65 at the moment.</p><p style=““ class=“text-align-justify“>The Fed remains the driving force for the next key move but with markets already inching towards 4% rates, it will take some added convincing from Powell & co. to drive another push higher surely – same might be said for the dollar as well.</p>
