The U.S. financial markets have been relatively calm this week, even as stocks hit a new all-time high again Thursday. The yield on the 10-Year Treasury has finally seemed to settle into a trading range between 2.35 and 2.5 percent.Keep your eyes open next week for movement on interest rates when the Federal Reserve convenes for its end-of-year meeting Dec. 13-14. All indications point to a likely rate hike of 25 basis points.
