Iran fired a series of rockets at two U.S.- Iraqi airbases early Wednesday morning Baghdad time, the Pentagon said, in the first Iranian response to the killing of General Qassem Soleimani by American forces last week. The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps earlier claimed responsibility for the barrage, which the Pentagon said was launched from Iran and targeted the Ayn al-Asad base in western Iraq and another facility in Erbil. It wasn’t immediately clear whether there were casualties or major damage from the attacks. (Bloomberg)

The rush to haven assets after Iran’s retaliation to the killing of General Qassem Soleimani has sent benchmark U.S. yields tumbling through their recent uptrend. Stocks sold off and Treasuries climbed alongside the yen and Swiss franc after Iran fired a series of rockets at two U.S.-Iraqi airbases early Wednesday morning Baghdad time. The 10-year Treasury yield fell as much as 11 basis points to 1.7%, its lowest since December, breaking below the uptrend it had been in since early September. (Bloomberg)
