“The question is whether the market bounces off a 5 percent or a 10 percent drop,” he said. “I think we’re going to bounce around here for a while.”
Treasury Yields Pull Back
As U.S. equities plunged, the benchmark 10-year Treasury note and 30-year note pulled back from their upward trajectory. The 10-year yield ticked lower to 3.14 at the market close, while the 30-year fell to 3.311.
Shorter duration bond yields also fell with the three-month note ticking lower to 2.266, the two-year to 2.848 and the five-year to 2.998.
“Yields have pulled back and you have softer inflation data. This puts a question on the number of Fed rate hikes in 2019,” said Minh Trang, senior FX trader at Silicon Valley Bank in Santa Clara, California.
