30-year US Treasury yield hits 3%

Recently, the US 30-year Treasury yield topped 3% as the all-maturity Treasury market and broader credit markets continue to sell off.

The decline in bonds isn't much less than Bitcoin's decline from its all-time high.  Legacy finance is proving to be just as volatile as bitcoin.

The rise in yields has resulted in much higher volatility in bond markets and significant losses for investors. The iShares 20-Year Treasury Bond ETF, TLT, which tracks a long-dated index, is now down over 30% from its all-time high set in July 2020. The recent drawdown is the fastest deceleration over a 30-day percentage change since May 2009.
