Where Will Rates Go From Here? - Real Time Insight

Throughout May and June, the yield on the 10-year Treasury surged more than 100 basis points. This sudden jump led to big losses in shares of interest-rate sensitive stocks like homebuilders and high-yielding dividend stocks.

However, yields have started to pull back a bit. Since hitting its recent high of 2.72% on July 5, the yield on the 10-year has fallen 20 basis points and seems to be leveling off around 2.50%:

But is this just a temporary reprieve before rates proceed higher again? Or will rates just consolidate around 2.5% until the timeline for Fed tapering becomes clearer? Or are we going to see sub-2% again?

Post your response below.
