Treasury Yields Surge as Global Central Banks Scramble to Respond to Fed, Inflation

U.S. government bond yields surged Thursday, after foreign governments and central banks rushed to raise interest rates or otherwise support local currencies pressured by the dollar’s strongest rally in a generation.

U.S. yields were largely stable overnight after the Federal Reserve raised short-term rates by 0.75 percentage point for the third consecutive meeting and said more large rate increases are likely as the central bank seeks to quell inflation.
