The flattening of the U.S. yield curve may accelerate, technical patterns on the chart suggest.

The difference between two- and 10-year yields may approach 113 basis points, a Fibonacci confluence zone, after the curve broke down below the four-month steepening trend line and the 21-day moving average at 125-124 basis points.

The 100-day moving-average lurks just below at 112 basis points. Any steepening beyond 129 basis points would question the near-term flattening risks.
