Gold Spikes To 6Y Highs As Dollar, Bond Yields Plunge

Citigroup sees 10-year Treasury yields falling to about 1.65% by year’s end as the Federal Reserve cuts interest rates up to three times to boost U.S. economy, senior technical strategist Shyam Devani tells Bloomberg.

“Yields have been falling across the curve, and this has been something you haven’t been able to fight,” Singapore-based Devani said by telephone.

“You’ve got a Fed that’s now changed its language and we’re on a path where there’s going to be rate cuts ahead -- whether it’s two or three times, it’s hard to say -- but there will be cuts”

“It’s a combination of things driving this including a slowing global growth environment, trade tensions and low inflation”
