Good morning! This is Fly Charts, the daily charts-only newsletter from Gadfly; sign up here. From yield scares to Soho exclusivity, here are four charts that tell you what you need to know in business today.

Long and Winding Road

Other Way

Still Yielding

Bond yields are on the rise, but it's not time for stock investors to worry yet. OK, maybe a little.

And don't miss Marcus Ashworth on European bond safety: "To be sure, the great times in European fixed income won't last forever. Economies are, finally, recovering. But as Gadfly has been arguing, it's all a matter of timing. The ECB is at pains to emphasize it will sustain its stimulus not just in bond buying but in maintaining negative deposit rates literally for years to come. European bond yields ought to reflect that."
