RE: US Interest Rates Analysis Report 5/20/19 - Are Rates Eventually Going Higher???

In addition, if the trade war gets into nasty tactics, China can dump Treasuries which will force rates higher unless the Fed picks them up. I believe that last week’s Treasury auction was one of the weakest in years and some were talking about China not buying new positions.

Funny you mention the treasury auction...something that I want to better understand, but yes, China has some leverage in the matter too. Things aren't looking good for either side.
