The yield curve got a little steeper as the 3 year-10 year spread rose 2 bps to 67bps over the week. Yields took their lead from offshore and rose but the theme of smaller rises at the long end took a break. Whether this is the result of central bank intervention or the outcome of normal market forces is debatable but while both the ECB and US Fed are still adding to demand for bonds through their open market operations, the question will remain.
