It was literally the most amazing week for US Treasuries. Except that 30 year mortgage rates will likely rise on Monday.

(Bloomberg) Treasuries declined, with benchmark yields approaching 2015/2016 highs, as stronger-than-forecast U.S. consumer sentiment bolstered bets that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates next week.
The U.S. 10-year yield rose five basis points to 2.46 percent at 1:12 p.m. in New York, nearing the 2.49 percent level reached last week, the highest since June 2015. The benchmark 30-year yield set a 17-month high at 3.17 percent. The Treasury will hold auctions of both maturities next week ahead of the Fed’s decision on Dec. 14.
And the 10 year – 2 year US Treasury yield curve slope is the highest in one year.
On the other hand, the 30 year mortgage rate has been rising.
As Chris Traeger would say … half amazing, half terrific!
