American futures head south

On Thursday, the Wall Street index pointed to a sag at the start of the American market. The surge of yield of American government bonds kept putting pressure on market participants.

Market participants keep monitoring the value of American government bonds yield: the revenue on American ten-year government bonds inched down by 0.13%, hitting 3.091% after it hit its peak for seven years - 3,119%.

The jump in the revenue of American bonds along with the acceleration of inflation underpinned forecasts of a faster monetary tightening compared to previous FRS plans.
