Trade tensions have dominated market sentiment for much of this year, with wild swings in global markets as rhetoric between world’s two largest economies fluctuates from conciliatory to combative.
On Wednesday, the rate on the benchmark 30-year Treasury bond sank to an all-time low, while the U.S. yield curve inverted even further.
The move extended losses from earlier in the week, when the spread between the 10-year rate and the 2-year yield — seen by many as an important recession prognosticator — registered its lowest level since 2007.
