The 10 YR yield is currently at 2.610%.

After a number of Fed officials called for more aggressive tightening to fight inflation, the central bank’s minutes from its March meeting indicated general agreement to shrink its massive balance sheet by $95 billion per month.

Bond yields rose Thursday after the government reported fewer-than-expected 166,000 weekly initial jobless claims. The 10-year Treasury yield was trading around three-year highs above 2.6% and was no longer inverted lower than the 2-year yield. However, the 5-year Treasury yield remained inverted, still higher than the 30-year yield. Historically, these inversions have happened before economic recessions. With the jobs market strong, the Fed may have room to slow the economy to fight inflation — threading the needle on its dual mandate of fostering maximum employment and controlling prices. The central bank is expected to hike rates at all six of its remaining meetings this year. The size of those increases are the question.

Ukraine on Thursday appealed to NATO for more weapons in its fight against Russia to help prevent further atrocities like those reported in Bucha, just outside of Kyiv. Western countries have provided Ukraine with portable anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons, but they have been reluctant to supply aircraft, tanks or any other equipment that would require training to use.

U.S. futures are lower, European stocks are mostly higher and Asian markets ended lower.

The national average price of gasoline is down 1.1 cents at $4.153 per gallon.
