Chart of the Month | March 2024

Over the past two years, interest rates have fluctuated as economic expectations have shifted. The 10-year Treasury yield briefly exceeded 5.0% for the first time since 2007 but has now settled around 4.2%. Movements in interest rates have far-reaching implications that impact everything from business loans to asset valuations. Inflationary pressures have declined significantly from the peak levels seen in mid-2022, but recent inflationary data is proving stubbornly elevated. All eyes are now focused on when we will see the Federal Reserve begin to cut short-term interest rates, with market expectations pointing to sometime in the second half of 2024.
