Now everybody is talking about the rising treasury yields. However, 10-yr treasury 2.857% has little change today (in a narrow range 2.79~2.86%). Even for the whole week, 10-yr treasury stays in the range 2.72~2.89%. Well, rising yields may have triggered the correction, But the high frequent trading (HFT) probably play a bigger role than you think. HFT loves high volatility so that they earn money from panic sellers. Compared to relatively quiet bond market, we have experienced storms in equity market --- Dow Jones drops more than 1000 points twice; more than 500 points three times. For the week, all three indices have dropped -5.2%.
Commodities: Crude -3.19% to $59.20. Gold -0.2% to $1,316.40.
For next week, I think it will probably be less dramatic, but still volatile.
