US Yields Fall Raises Concerns

Treasury benchmark yields that fell to 2% this month are raising concern the US economy is losing momentum, Bloomberg reported. Yields tumbled as a 8% decline in the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index in January, crude oil at a 12-year low and falling inflation expectations sent money managers to the haven of government securities. While the US is adding jobs, manufacturing is contracting. Investors are trimming forecasts for how much the Federal Reserve can raise interest rates. Treasuries dropped for the first time in five days on Tuesday with the 10-year note yield climbing three basis points to 2.07% in Tokyo. The price of the 2.25% security due in November 2025 fell 9/32, or $2.81 per $1,000 face amount, to 101 5/8.
