And 50b for all the tech unicorns? Uber alone was valued at over 80b when it went public at $45, its now worth less than what it was valued at in the last private funding round, my point is serious money has been lost on these things because there has been a paradigm shift.
Yes I mean is there a cause for concern to us?

I guess its relevant to people who like to invest in these "hot IPOs".

US 10 year yields are rising and so are global yields. That is something to watch out for.

I do not think we are at levels that are critical enough to trigger any sell off in the equity space. There was a rush into Bonds as Central Banks cut rates and we had the spectre of slowing growth due to an escalating trade war. Now that tensions are somewhat defused on the trade front, this rise in yield may well be unwinding of the past flows.
From observations and inferences on my own trades, my gains from shorts have outstripped those from longs even though we see the S&P500 making new highs. These are momentum setups that would benefit most from the index trading in the same direction. Most of the longs were triggered but failed to reach profit targets and most were eventually stopped out at break even point... so is the rally running out of steam? While SP 500 edged higher overnight, the number of decliners have exceeded the gainers by 16%. My shorts, though fewer managed to hit or exceed their profit targets... maybe, fear is a stronger emotion than greed in driving volatility but another way of looking at things may be that the rally is running out of steam? I view things as over extended for now and in a way, it is coloring my bias towards short trades.

What is the impact of US 10 year yields and global yields rising?

If i'm not wrong, its a signal for improving economy outlook which may prompt US fed bank to increase interest rates.

Experts please correct me if i'm wrong

The yield curve has steepen so it's reversing from the "prediction of a recession".

Steepen is vague as it could mean becoming a more positive or negative gradient. However, I take it you mean the gradient is becoming more positive.

As for reversing from prediction of recession, that is an inference of the yield curve as an economic indicator. However, it is an inference and not an impact.

Maybe I'll rephrase my question: What is the fundamental/economic impact of US 10 year yields and global yields rising?

I'd say tweets are a better indication than yield curves in this day

It is just something to watch out for. If 10y treasury yields rise to 2.25-2.5%, then it is no longer zero interest rates for equities to keep rising.

Err I don't think it is vague if you understand the concept of steepening/flattening...

With Trump at helm, he likely will spin more "news" to make the stock market go higher!
But watch out, the crash is not far too!
