The 2s10s spread has now reduced to 45 basis points and the 2s30s spread has been reduced to a fresh cycle low of 66 basis points.

    Why February’s Jobs Report Had a Negative Impact on Bond Markets

    The US bond markets were the only asset class that failed to rally after the February jobs report was released on March 9, 2018.
