(Reuters) – BlackRock Investment Institute on Monday raised the rating of long-dated U.S. Treasuries to “neutral” from “underweight” as it sees yields approaching a peak.
“We now see about equal odds that long-term yields swing in either direction,” said Jean Boivin, head of BlackRock Investment Institute. [US/]
