Benchmark 10-year U.S. government bond yields have jumped to 16-year highs this month as economic data remains robust despite higher interest rates. The Federal Reserve last Wednesday said that it may hike rates further and was likely to keep them elevated for a longer time as it battles to bring inflation closer to its 2% annual target. “The story of September has been the jump in Treasury yields and the spillovers into the currency market,” said Adam Button, chief currency analyst at ForexLive in Toronto.

A combination of resilient economic data, hawkish Federal Reserve rhetoric and a budget deficit to be financed by borrowing has the 10-year Treasury yield up more than 45 basis points (bps) in September to top 4.5% for the first time since 2007. Rates markets are priced for an almost 40% risk of another Fed hike this year, against slimmer chances for another rise in Europe, and the difference has helped prop up a dollar many had bet would swiftly fall as the Fed signalled an end to hikes.

TOKYO (Reuters) -Japan's finance minister said on Tuesday that authorities won't rule out any options in dealing with excessive currency volatility, underlining a warning that has kept traders on alert for intervention to prop up the weak yen.

"Excessive volatility is undesirable," the minister, Shunichi Suzuki, told reporters.
