Stocks flat as investors monitor rising Treasury Yields 150 150 Realm

Market participants are monitoring the recent rise in US Treasury Yields. The benchmark US 10 year Treasury Yield reached 1.3%, a twelve month high. Higher rates could encourage investors to rotate out of risk-assets and into bonds so the rise in yields will be closely watched.

UK inflation rose by 0.7% on an annual basis. JPMorgan has suggested that inflation is “likely to start testing the Bank of England’s 2% target later in the year”.
