VIENNA, April 9 (Reuters) - A disorderly rise in interest rates worldwide could upset strong economic growth in Asia and other emerging markets, top Asian financial officials warned on Sunday and urged central bankers to be careful.
Sharply rising yields on bonds could be disruptive to growth in Asia, which is expanding around 6 percent, said Haruhiko Kuroda, president of Asian Development Bank.
Bond markets showed their vulnerability last week to changing views on the global rate outlook with the yield curve steepening in the United States, Europe
and Japan
U.S. 10-year Treasury notes <US10YT=RR> hit their highest level in nearly four years and the 30-year bond <US30YT=RR> broke 5 percent.

TTRTRates B o E whether you like it or not? Gordon's dream of a perpetual "Miracle Economy" based on HPI and MEW coming apart at the seams?

The US seems to have awoken some time ago:


"The market took the report as a sign that a 5 percent Fed funds rate in May is a near certainty, with decent odds being put on a 5.25 percent rate in June," said Wan-Chong Kung, senior portfolio manager at First American Funds.
