Hey… its a good week. The catalyst was the expectation that  inflation  may have peaked as a result of a slowdown in the housing market and other weaker data. Yields moved lower for 3rd week in a row. The market priced out 3 rate hikes, and are now looking for 2. Fed’s Bostic also said the Fed may look to pause in September and reevaluate.
