Japanese 10 Year Bond Hits 7 Year High

Recommended Posts

TOKYO, April 18 (Reuters) - Japanese Finance Minister Sadakazu Tanigaki said on Tuesday that recent rises in long-term interest rates were somewhat rapid.
"There is speculation that interest rates will rise, but I hope the BOJ will send a message that that is not necessarily true, and I hope that markets will understand that message," Tanigaki told reporters.
He was speaking shortly after the benchmark 10-year government bond yield rose to 2 percent for the first time in nearly seven years.

With IR hikes on the way the last remaining underpin to HPI in the UK is removed--low IR. The traditional Easter buying frenzy didn't happen this year which suggests that the market has already long since turned. The days or property doom and gloom may well be behind us now as the dead cat behaves as dead cats do.

The only fenzy now is the rush to sell as the RICS report suggests.
