We think the peak in Treasury yields is still to come

We doubt that the 10-year Treasury yield has peaked in this cycle. Admittedly, it has fallen back markedly on net over the past couple of weeks; having briefly climbed above 3.20% earlier this month, it is now at around ~2.85%. But, it has risen ~5bp so far today and we suspect that it will climb a lot more over the next 12 months or so.

US corporate credit spreads have reached post-Global-Financial-Crisis (GFC) lows in recent weeks. So, despite our forecast for a healthy US economy, we expect US corporate bonds to outperform Treasuries only very slightly.

DM central banks, bond yields and the US dollar

We think that the various developed market (DM) central bank meetings this week will support our view that long-dated government bond yields will generally rise further in the US than elsewhere over the next few years. This underpins our forecast for the US dollar to strengthen against most currencies.
