Upward Pressure in Treasury Yields: Tom Essaye Quoted in Barron’s
Stock Futures Slide as Bond Yields Keep Rising
Firstly, “Markets want to see Congress take some actual steps towards curbing spending and addressing the long-term fiscal issues facing the country,” wrote Tom Essaye, president of Sevens Report Research. “In order for that to happen, the Congress needs to function relatively normally, and that’s in doubt.”
“That doubt is adding to the upward pressure in Treasury yields. While that is not the only reason yields have risen, it is a contributing factor that the sooner the markets get more confidence in Congress being able to function properly, the sooner it removes a tailwind on Treasury yields (that will be good for stocks),” he continued.
