General market news              

  • With coronavirus cases on the rise, investors moved into Treasuries last week, causing a drop in yields. This drop came after yields had picked up on news of positive vaccine trials. The 10-year Treasury yield opened last Monday at 0.91 percent but closed the week at 0.83 percent, giving up 8 basis points (bps). The 30-year yield opened at 1.65 percent and closed at 1.53 percent, giving up 12 bps. The 2-year yield opened at 0.19 percent and closed at 0.16 percent. The move into Treasuries seemed to be part of a risk-off trade as states are forced to implement more stringent measures to control the spread of the coronavirus.

General market news              

  • Last week saw a major pickup in Treasury yields following the news of the Pfizer and BioNTech vaccine results. The 10-year Treasury yield opened at 0.83 percent and closed just shy of 0.89 percent, hitting an intra-week high of 0.97 percent on Tuesday.
