It's been the calmest week for the bond market since the election. But leave it to a global event to keep pushing up rates... the ECB (European Central Bank) announced a continuation of their bond purchasing program (similar to our FEDs action for several years after "the crash")... but lowered the levels of their purchases... thus causing investors to sell off bonds. 

Quote of the week from Movement Secondary Market.... 

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.
