The Search for High-Yield Points to U.S., Says Stealey
It takes a lot to rattle Treasuries traders these days. Not since 1962, when John F.

In fact, they don’t demand anything at all. A Federal Reserve Bank of New York measure of the 10-year term premium, a product of the perceived riskiness of longer-dated securities, fell to negative 0.38 percentage point Tuesday. Many bond professionals view a level below zero as signaling the debt is theoretically overvalued.
