Treasurys fell broadly, led by shorter maturities, with the difference between yields on five- and 30-year maturities approaching the smallest since 2007 .After a turbulent stretch where the Treasury and the Fed tried to bolster confidence in the financial system, the yield closed below 2 percent at the end of September 2008 and remained below that mark until today.While that didn't happen, the yield spread between long- and short-maturity Treasurys has continued to shrink, flattening the yield curve.Traders are now factoring in almost 2 1/2 Fed hikes for 2018, up from the two increases that were priced in as of Dec. 20, based on Fed fund futures.
