We expect long-dated Treasury yields to rise further still

The 10-year Treasury yield rose to its highest level since June on Friday amid growing concerns about inflation.

Assessing the outlook for DM monetary policy & bonds

Even though we think that most major developed markets (DM) central banks will hike their policy rates more slowly than investors currently anticipate over the next two years, we still expect the yields of 10-year government bonds to rise at least a little in most major DMs over that time. We anticipate that the increase will be the largest in the US, where we think inflationary pressures are strongest.

We think the Norwegian krone’s rally is nearing its end

Although the krone has rallied this year on the back of high energy prices and the expectation of tighter monetary policy, we do not expect this to continue. We think slowing global growth and normalising energy prices will work against the krone over the next 12-18 months. Our view is that these headwinds will be balanced by more hawkish monetary policy, resulting in a broadly stable outlook for the krone. In view of the wider interest, we are also sending this FX Markets Update to clients of our Nordic & Swiss service
