    TweetBy Jason Wong US Treasury rates have traded in a tight range, with the 10-year rate down a touch to 2.29%. Clearly, the market isn’t giving much weight to the “massive” tax cuts and prospect of rising fiscal deficits and debt.

The lack of a more hawkish tone from the ECB helped drive German 10-year rates down 6 bps t…
