The yield curve flattens in the US. Sharp rise in the USD

Long-term bond yields have erased most their post Fed-meeting rise yesterday but the rise persists on shorter-term maturities.

US tech stocks even rebounded. The USD kept its gains too and even reinforced them: the EUR/USD exchange rate plunged to 1.19.
