interest rates II
Another bad day for bonds.
Yields on 10-year Treasury notes climbed to the highest in five years as former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan predicted an increase in benchmark yields and greater premiums on emerging-market debt.
Up about 14 basis points, which is pretty solidly into "yikes" territory. A reopening of the 10-year issue didn't go as well as was hoped.
