So much for the risk recovery today. What calmness that markets have worked to establish over the past few hours is going out the window now.
US futures are paring gains while Treasury yields are marked lower again. 10-year yields are down by nearly 3 bps while 30-year yields are back under 2.00%, down by almost 4 bps.
In turn, USD/JPY is back lower as the pair falls from 106.20 to 105.90 currently.
