The Forgotten Dividend: The 200 Basis Point Difference between US and German Fixed-Income Benchmarks

One of my favorite economic and financial indicators that is often overlooked by mainstream media is the divergence between key US and German fixed-income benchmarks. This indicator can provide important insights into the global economy, and its current level is notable.

Specifically, this indicator measures the difference between the yield on the 10-year US Treasury note and its counterpart in Germany, which also serves as a benchmark for much of Europe. In recent trading sessions, this differential had risen to 200 basis points in favor of the US, a level that has only been reached three times since the beginning of 2020.

Historically, this 200 basis point difference is well above the low over the past three years of 90 basis points and is just short of the high of 214 basis points. This indicates a significant divergence between the two benchmarks and could signal important trends in the global economy.

By paying attention to lesser-known indicators like the US-German fixed-income benchmark divergence, investors and analysts can gain valuable insights that are often overlooked by mainstream financial media. These insights can help them make informed decisions about their investments and navigate changing market conditions.
