The 10-year Treasury is currently trading at 2.23%, which is down about 20 basis points in the last few weeks. The market had priced in a Fed increase, which did not happen, so we are just now seeing the effects of that. You can expect the 10-year to trickle down another 10 basis points to about 2.10% as it becomes clear the Fed is not going to raise rates this year. We still have flat wages, severely depressed energy prices (with no end in sight), which will have a big drag on desperately needed inflation. Finally, the current world instability will keep rates low.
