10-Year Treasury Yield Moves Upward

U.S. Treasury yields have moved higher this week, as White House officials signaled that the President’s tough talk on trade won’t lead to growth -sapping tariffs.  Federal Reserve officials reported that it is premature to fully assess the impact of the trade dispute, which has been adding uncertainty to an otherwise bright economic outlook ahead of Friday’s jobs report.  For this week, the 10-year Treasury yield has moved up from 2.73%, breaking through 2.80%.
