Since Donald Trump became President-Elect, the 10 year Treasury Bond has sold off from 1.77% to 2.34% as of last night. This is a massive move in interest rates, and it’s because the world suddenly started fearing inflation. I’m hearing that there are multi year records for cash outflows coming out of fixed income. I’m getting emails from random people who want to sell their bond mutual funds because losses are accelerating. If you were planning to refinance your student loans, you need to get going right away or else you could be paying more in interest very soon.
