Inflation-adjusted bond yields are falling again, highlighting investors' doubts about the U.S. economy's growth prospects. The yield on the 10-year Treasury inflation-protected security, or TIPS, pulled back to 0.483% Friday, down from 0.530% Thursday and a recent high of 0.646% on July 7. Yields fall when bond prices rise. The 10-year TIPS yield is one popular measure of so-called real yields, or the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note minus the rate of inflation.
Prices of U.S. government bonds pulled back on Wednesday after a three-day gain as investors took some chips off the table ahead of interest-rate policy meetings from two of the world's major central banks that could affect their wagers on the bond market. Both the Bank of Japan and the European Central Bank are scheduled to hold meetings Thursday. The Federal Reserve's next meeting is due to take place next week.
The yield on the benchmark U.S. 10-year Treasury note rose Friday to its highest level since May. A stronger-than-forecast jobs report for June pushed up U.S. stocks Friday and sapped demand for haven bonds. The selling pressure in the bond market was contained by a wage indicator suggesting inflation isn't a big threat to bondholders. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note settled at 2.393%, compared with 2.369% Thursday. It marked the yield's highest close since May 11.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
