10-Year Treasury Hits 19-Month Low

No surprises in this week’s market news as trade tensions continue, forcing investors towards safe-haven investments and driving the 10-year Treasury down to 2.31%, its lowest level in 19 months. The 10-year yield is down 25 basis points from a month ago and 67 basis points from a year ago. Risky assets remain under pressure and havens, like U.S. Treasuries, are in demand as investors are forced to dig in for what looks like a protracted trade dispute between the world’s largest economies.
