2023-11-15 09:42AM UTC

US 10-year treasury yields declined on Wednesday for the third straight session to a two-month trough following US inflation data for October.


The report indicated that inflationary pressures have receded in the US, and bolstered the view that the current policy tightening cycle is already over. 


US Yields


US 10-year treasury yields tumbled 0.5% today, plumbing two-month lows at 4.428% and boosting non-yielding assets.


Such gains came after US consumer prices showed a sharp slowdown in October, all but confirming the end of the current policy tightening cycle.


US Inflation Data


In the US, consumer prices rose 3.2% y/y in October, slowing down from 3.7% in the previous reading, and below estimates of 3.3%.



Core prices, excluding food and energy, rose 4% y/y, down from 4.1% in the previous reading.


US Rates


Following the data, the odds for a US interest rate hike in December plunged to 1%.


Traders also now expect the Federal Reserve to enact its first interest rate cut in May 2024. 




Analysts now expect the Fed to change gear and focus on supporting the economy as inflation slows down considerably in line with targets.
