Matthew Boesler

Heads up: it's been a crazy week for U.S. Treasuries – the bonds have sold off substantially since Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's Wednesday press conference – and yields are rising again today.

Right now, the yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury note is 2.53%, 11 basis points higher from yesterday's close.

Before Bernanke, it was at 2.21%.

The bonds are making new lows in the final minutes of trading this week. The chart below shows 10-year Treasury futures today.
