Tyro Payments share price lifts on Wednesday

Tech stocks’ strong performance comes amid falling bond yields and rising interest rates.
The Reserve Bank of Australia lifted the nation’s cash rate 50 basis points to 1.35% in its July meeting yesterday. But that hasn’t seemingly dinted ASX tech shares.
Any potential rate-related shock seems to have been absorbed as US Treasury note 10-year yields slipped to 2.8% overnight.
As my Fool colleague Zach reported earlier today, government bond yields and the valuation of risk assets (such as shares) move in opposites.
Thus, the shift in bond yields may have bolstered ASX tech shares like Tyro Payments.
But today’s gain hasn’t been enough to boost the stock back into the long-term green. The Tyro Payments share price has tumbled 76% year to date and 81% over the last 12 months.
