1. Today’s blog post shows the year-to-date (as of 11/6/17) move in a couple of benchmark government bond yields from a number of key countries representing many regions around the globe.
2. As of 11/6/17,the spread between 2-year and 10-year government bond yields is fairly narrow for a number of the countries featured in the table.While a flattening of the yield curve has at times signaled that a recession could be in the offing, we do not believe this to be the case in the current climate.
