Treasuries Curve Steepens in Longest Streak Since January: Chart

The difference in yield between Treasuries due in five years and 30 years has increased for five straight days, the longest stretch since January. The spread is at a one-month high, a departure from the trend of a flattening U.S. curve as investors reach for the extra yield on longer maturities and bet that inflation will fail to accelerate. Treasuries have slipped this month along with bonds worldwide after yields reached record lows in July.
