Treasury yields dip as market assesses last week’s jobs data

Aug. 7:

As the market awaits Thursday’s Consumer Price Index report, it continues to try to untangle the consequences of Friday’s employment data.

Fed funds futures see little likelihood of change in interest rates at the Federal Open Market Committee meeting on Sept. 20, and only a 36% chance of a tightening at the Nov. 1 meeting. On the other hand, some Federal Reserve officials — most recently Fed Governor Michelle Bowman — have indicated additional rate increases might be needed to bring inflation to the Fed’s long-term target.

This morning, the Dow traded up and Treasury yields were down relative to Friday morning.
