The US 10-year yield has reached a new high dating back to November 2018.

Forecasts a 2019 high of 3.252 percent

The US 10-year yield is trading at 3.134 percent, just off the day’s and week’s highs.

The current yield stands at 3.126 percent. The weekly chart shows that the yield has reached its highest level since November 2018. In 2018, the high yield was 3.248 percent.

That is the next target on the upside. Move above that yield and the yield is at the highest level since April 2011.

In early January 2022, the rate was at 1.529 percent. The current yield is 1.59 percent higher than the low.

The current Fed rate is not particularly high. The Fed is still 100 to 150 basis points away from a neutral rate of 2.0 percent to 2.5 percent (where rates peaked). As a result, the desire to arrive as soon as possible. The Fed is falling behind the curve and the market. The market is on top.

However, if the terminal rate is higher, there is room to the upside given the price action from the last time rates were near this level in relation to the Fed Funds target.
