Crypto-currency Bitcoin has experienced a tremendous run-up since the 2016 election (November 8th) of Donald Trump. In fact, it has risen from $710 on election day 2016 to $15,600 as of today.
The US Treasury 10 year yield rose dramatically on election day 2016, but today’s 10-year yield is about the same as it was in late November 2016.
The US Treasury 10Y-2Y curve continues to flatten as Trump enthusiasm waines as Democrats ferociously attempt to block almost any change proposed by Trump or Republicans.
Oddly, Bitcoin was left off the list off the Financial Systems Vulnerabilities Monitor.
