15. The 30-year T Bond did NOT hit a new record low. It's yield did. That's a big difference

When yield drops, the value of a bond rises. Bond yields and bond prices move in opposite directions.

One big piece of news came when the yield on 10-year U.S. Treasury notes dipped below the yield of two-year U.S. Treasury notes, a rare occurrence described by market watchers as an "inverted yield curve." The 30-year U.S. Treasury bond also hit a new record low on Wednesday.


Nope, au contraire, its price rose. But the yield hit a new record low. 2.06%. .
