Bond market fireworks highlight recession worries

NEW YORK (Reuters) -Sharp moves in the U.S. Treasury market are increasingly pointing to the risk of an approaching recession, with “bond vigilantes coming out of the woodwork” and markets doubting the U.S. Federal Reserve’s plan to engineer a “soft landing” for the economy as it hikes interest rates to fight inflation, market experts said.

Bond yields, which move inversely to prices, spiked while the U.S. Treasury yield curve continued its flattening trend.
