The Euro has managed to rally to start this week after a volatile trading session through the US time zone.

Most notably, Treasury yields climbed higher overnight before retreating lower after famed investors, Bill Ackman and Bill Gross Tweeted some bullish dynamics for US government debt.

Ackman said that his organisation had covered its short bond position due to concerns about the outlook for the US economy.

Not long after, Bill Gross, a fixed-income specialist, made public his preference for buying the Treasury inverted yield curve in the 2s 10s and 2s 5s.

He is expressing a view of buying the short-end bonds and selling the long-end bonds on the basis that the Federal Reserve mantra of ‘higher for longer is yesterday’s news’.

He also sees problems ahead for the US economy and is buying near-term interest rate futures outright that will settle in 2025.

The context for EUR/USD is the possibility that Treasury yields might have peaked, particularly for the benchmark 10-year note. Time will tell if the ‘Bills’ are correct or otherwise.
