U.S Bond yields are sharply higher

Bond yields across the board following a public market holiday on Friday, as traders continue to eye upward inflation trends following the election of Donald Trump. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note is 15 bps higher at 2.27%, while the 30-year Treasury bond yield is over 3% for the first time since January. The movement has also lit a fire under the greenback, with the U.S. dollar index up more than 1%, hitting 100 for the first time in almost a year.
