Current US Treasury Bond Rates And Yields
For some perspective on all-important long-term interest rates, today's chart illustrates the 28-year trend of the 10-year Treasury bond yield (thick blue line). As today's chart illustrates, the 10-year Treasury bond yield has moved within the confines of a 27-year downward sloping trend channel. More recently, a modest but improved economic outlook in the US has helped send the 10-year Treasury bond yield higher over the past 18 months. In fact, the 10-year yield has increased a very significant 140 basis points (i.e. 1.4%) since its resistance testing, July 2012 trough. In the end, this upward move in long-term yields is something to watch in light of the US economy's ever increasing dependence on debt.
