Another day, another yield battle. The bond market went on a wild ride over the last 24 hours, with the 10-year Treasury yield shooting up 11 bps to a 14-month high of 1.75%, before ending the session at 1.72%. The move weighed on equities, especially the tech sector, with the Nasdaq tumbling another 3% on Thursday to re-enter correction territory. It didn’t last long. The 10-year yield then fell back 4 bps to 1.68%, prompting Nasdaq futures to rebound 1% and lead overnight gains.

Prior Session was Cycle Day 3 (CD3): Having fulfilled cycle objectives and with buyers switching to selling, prices accelerated to the downside throughout the session, closing near lows. Range was 78 handles on 1.058M contracts exchanged.
