Ameriprise Financial Monthly Market Recap April 2024

The 2-year U.S. Treasury rate remained stable over the month, while the 10-year U.S. Treasury rate saw a marginal decrease of five basis points, closing at 4.2%. Both market participants and the Federal Reserve persist in foreseeing potential rate cuts in the latter half of this year. However, the trajectory of these cuts could be influenced by sustained and unforeseen economic vigor, potentially leading the Fed to proceed with more caution than presently envisaged. This could hold implications for commercial real estate in the Puget Sound region, as interest rate dynamics directly impact property investment and development.
