The move to the downside also fell below the swing high yields going back to June at 3.495%. On September 20, the yield moved above that level and based against it on September 21 before starting the climb to the high reached on October 21 at 4.335%

The 3.5% area was important in the past and the return to it has traders mulling the area again.
