That's trouble

US 10-year yields are up 4.5 bps to 2.955%. That's fractionally above the February high and sure to cause increasing jitters in broader markets.

There is some major disbelief that yields can continue to rise... which reminds me of some axioms about markets doing whatever causes the most people, the most pain.
