For the first time in weeks the markets actually responded to the economic factors responsibly. Wall St fell as US treasury bonds yields (interest returns) rose. “Yields are rising to levels that are becoming very worrisome for the economic outlook,” said William Sullivan, chief economist at JVB Financial Group in Boca Raton, Florida. Bond prices declined in afternoon trading, causing their yields to rise, as concerns about the heavy supply of debt weighed on the market despite a well-received auction of new five-year notes.
