S&P 500 vs. Ten Year Treasury Yield

Even though the S&P 500 is getting closer and closer to reclaiming the 1300 level, the interest rate on the 10 year treasury hasn't rebounded quite as much.  The last time the S&P 500 was at 1300, the 10 year treasury was at 3%.  Today, the bond is still struggling to get over 2%.

Perhaps this is a sign that operation twist, announced in September, continues to have an effect on the longer end of the curve?
