TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

U.S. government debt prices were higher on thursday morning as investors responded to Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen’s address to Congress and looked ahead to her second day of talks. On Wednesday, Yellen struck an optimistic tone, saying that the U.S. economy was healthy enough for further rate hikes and the winding down of its bond portfolio. She hinted that these hikes could be more gradual, however, as she cautioned that inflation still remains stubbornly low.

The speech could be one of Yellen’s last to Congress. The Trump administration is set to decide whether or not it will nominate Yellen for a second term.

Meanwhile, the Bank of Canada raised interest rates for the first time in nearly seven years on Wednesday, saying the economy no longer needed as much stimulus.
