10-year Treasury yield jumps above 3.5%, hits highest level since 2011

The benchmark 10-year Treasury yield rose to 3.5% on Monday morning, hitting its highest level since 2011 as investors brace for a higher-for-longer period of interest rates amid the Federal Reserve’s fight against inflations.

Treasury yields rose above the board last week after the August consumer price index report showed a surprise increase in prices. However, the 10-year largely held near its June highs of 3.495% before taking another leg higher on Monday.

The 10-year last traded at a yield of 3.506%, up nearly 6 basis points. Yields move opposite to price, and one basis point is equal to 0.01%.
