    This is the reason why U.S. Treasury yield will go up no matter Bernanke tapering off QE or not.

     

    Partial reason why U.S. Treasury bond value drop so much lately is because Japanese Yen depreciating.
    When Japanese Yen is depreciating, Japanese investors have to sell Yen and Buy U.S. Dollar and Japanese government has to sell U.S. Dollar to Japanese Investors and Buy their Japanese Yen back from them.
    When Japanese government sells U.S. Dollar, they have to sell their holdings on U.S. Treasury. Too bad Japanese government are one of the top U.S. Treasury bond holders. Selling them would seriously reduce U.S. Treasury bond value and force U.S. Treasury yields up.
