Inflation is a subject that we’ve been reading about for a while now. Take a look at the latest accurate reports revealed by the online publication CoinDesk.

According to CoinDesk, the yield on the U.S. 10-year Treasury note “rose to a three-week high of 2.90% early today, extending the recovery from the low of 2.67% hit after Wednesday’s inflation data.”

“If Thursday’s news meant it was time to celebrate victory over inflation, then the market response should have been straightforward,” John Authers, Bloomberg’s opinion columnist, said in an article published Friday.
He continued and stated the following:
“Bond yields should fall, as the Fed would logically seem unlikely to keep rates either as high or as long as had been feared.”
