US 10Y TREASURY: first cut in September?

TVC:US10Y   US Government Bonds 10 YR Yield
To be or not to be – the rate cut this year? The markets switched their expectations from March and May toward September, although currently not with high certainty. Recent data show still high resilience of the US economy on tight monetary policy. Retail sales in March were increased by 0.7% on a monthly basis, which was a figure much higher from 0.3% expected by markets. For markets, this information means that the inflation might pick up further, so the Fed will be reluctant to cut interest rates. Still, Friday trading session brought some strong corrections in 10Y US yields. Although Treasury bonds were traded at 4.69% at their weekly peak, they slipped on Friday till the level of 4.5%. Still, yields are ending the week at 4.62%. The modest drop in yields during Friday was the result of developments in the Middle East, however, the markets swiftly corrected their view, turning it toward the current fundamentals.

Aside from fundamentals which are not quite favored by markets, the geopolitics will continue to have their own influence on markets. In this sense, some relaxation in 10Y Treasury yields should be expected, however, they will react to any negative news related to the Middle East crisis. Markets will continue to weigh on the risks from this side.
