Data represents historical month end values

What is it?

  • The average interest rate on the 10 year U.S. Treasury note issued by the U.S. Government.

Why is it important?

  • It is important because it is seen as a benchmark for interest rate movements and borrowing costs in the economy.

How do we interpret it?

  • Rising value levels indicate increasing interest rates. Decreasing value levels indicate the opposite.

Typical historical range

  • As of December 31, 2016, +/- 1 standard deviation* of historical month-end values have ranged from 3.07% to 8.77%.1
