5% for the US 10-Year Treasury Yield: A Realistic Scenario

On Sunday, the results from the first round of the French presidential election showed that Emmanuel Macron obtained 27% of votes, closely followed by the right-wing Marine Le Pen, who got 24% support.

European and US equity futures kicked off the week on a bearish note, as the barrel of US traded near $95pb, as Bitcoin fell to $42K on limited risk appetite. Earnings season kicks off, with big US banks due to announce their first quarter results this week, and the earnings are seen sharply down from a year ago due to lower trading revenues, and negative impact of Ukraine war on activity.
