Goldman Asset Flags 4% Treasury Yield on Quantitative Tightening

Goldman Sachs Asset Management predicts Treasury 10-year yields may climb to the highest level in four years as the Federal Reserve ends its bond-buying program and weighs the first interest-rate increase since 2006.

The 10-year yield may rise as high as 4 percent over 12 months, the most since April 2010, as the end of so-called quantitative easing adds more interest-rate risk to the market, said Philip Moffitt, the Sydney-based head of fixed income in Asia-Pacific at Goldman Sachs Asset, which has $935 billion in assets under management globally. The yield closed at 2.56 percent yesterday, and touched 2.65 percent on Sept. 19, the highest since July 7.
