    US 10 year Treasuries yields through 3 Quantitative easing periods (QE1, QE2, Operation Twist) ---- periods are in blue (anticipation of QE) and grey (actual QE) --- QE1 and QE2 saw yields rising since the market believed that QE was very positive for the economy which outweighed the reduction of supply of Treasuries in the market place caused by QE. Operation Twist hasn’t had any lasting impact on yields.
