The yield curve reversed its recent flattening trend as yields at the short end rose less than those at the long end. As uncertainty in equity and commodity markets eased, the need for the certainty of returns in bonds was less pressing and longer-dated yields reversed some of the previous weeks’ falls. The 3y/10y bond spread rose by 3bps to 80bps as 3 year yields rose 1 point and 10 year yields rose 4bps. The spread is back to the bottom of the 80bps and 90bps in which the 3y/10y bond spread has mostly ranged since mid-August.
