Average interest per annual for 1-year and 10-year period

Both the 1-Year and 10-Year interest rates are on the downtrend since the start of the year. The global economy growth is expected to slow down due to the ongoing trade war between US and China resulting in the long term interest rate to fall. The market could be volatile in the near term and the risk has also increased.
