Investors weigh economic outlook as U.S. Treasury yields decline

As a journalist, I have rewritten the following article to make it unique.

The relationship between Treasury yields and prices is inversed – when yields increase, prices decrease, and vice versa. Every basis point represents a 0.01% change in yield. Investors are closely monitoring the latest data and remarks from Federal Reserve officials as they assess the economic outlook. There is uncertainty about when and how often the Fed will cut interest rates this year, with some policymakers suggesting fewer rate cuts than originally anticipated.

In recent reports, durable goods orders exceeded expectations in February, while consumer confidence decreased. Looking ahead, Fed Governor Christopher Waller is expected to speak on Wednesday, with key data including weekly initial jobless claims, GDP for the fourth quarter, and consumer sentiment insights scheduled for release on Thursday.

The most critical data for the week is expected on Friday, with the personal consumption expenditures price index, personal income, and spending figures being released. However, markets will be closed for Good Friday, meaning any market reaction to this data will occur the following week.
