Investors weigh economic outlook as U.S. Treasury yields decline

Treasury yields and prices move in opposite directions, with each basis point representing a 0.01% change in yield. As investors closely monitor the latest data and remarks from Federal Reserve officials, uncertainty surrounds when and how often the Fed will cut interest rates this year, with some policymakers suggesting there may be fewer rate cuts than originally anticipated.

Recent reports show that durable goods orders exceeded expectations in February, while consumer confidence in the economy has decreased. Looking ahead, key data includes weekly initial jobless claims, GDP for the fourth quarter, and consumer sentiment insights scheduled for release on Thursday.

The most critical data for the week is expected on Friday, with the personal consumption expenditures price index, personal income, and spending figures being released. However, markets will be closed for Good Friday, meaning any market reaction to this data will occur the following week.
