(Markets Edition) Bond yields on the 10-year Treasury note are at their highest level in four years. On today’s show, we’ll look at whether their rise will continue. Afterwards, we’ll talk about Venezuela’s decision to pre-sell a cryptocurrency known as the “petro,” which is backed by the country’s oil reserves.
