The graphic below captures the full 46 year history of the yield on the 10-Year U.S. Treasury Note. While difficult to discern from the graph, this is the first week the yield on that bond has ever closed below 3.0%
The 10-year note is now trading just above 2.5%.
That yield is near its all time record low,
nearly 5 percentage points below its 40-year average,
and 13 percentage points below its record high of September 1981.
