Authorities bond yields are rebounding, assuaging issues a couple of international financial slowdown

US Treasury bond yields rebounded on Friday, easing some worries about a global economic slowdown, partly due to the surprising decline in yields in recent months.

The benchmark ten-year government bond yield rose 5 basis points to 1.344% at 9:30 a.m. ET. The yield on the 30-year government bond rose 6 basis points to 1.978%. The returns move inversely to the prices and 1 basis point corresponds to 0.01 percentage points.

The rebound follows a sharp decline in yields on Thursday, which rocked equity markets and lowered the 10-year yield to 1.25%. Stock futures rebounded on Friday as yields rebounded.

Government bond yields have fallen over the past week, with the spread of the more transferable Delta-Covid-19 variant dampening sentiment. The 10-year government bond yield was 1.43% at the end of last week. In March it was 1.78%.

In addition, the Labor Department’s weekly jobless claims for the week ending July 3 showed an unexpected surge in first-time applicants. The data released on Thursday showed that 373,000 unemployment insurance claims were filed last week, which is above economists’ forecast of 350,000 initial claims.
