US bond yields fall on economic worries NEW YORK: US Treasuries yields declined on Thursday as a batch of disappointing economic reports revived worries about the US economy and prompted further questions whether the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates later this year.Weaker-than-expected data on existing home sales, the manufacturing sector and US Mid-Atlantic business activity came a day after the central bank signaled a June rate hike is doubtful following an anemic first-quarter.Fed policy-makers expressed at their April 28-29 meeting they would like to see further economic improvement to decide on ending their near zero interest rate policy stand, according to minutes released on Wednesday."The economic news is still soft in the second quarter," said Gary Pollack, head of fixed-income trading for private wealth management at Deutsche Bank Asset and Wealth Management in New York.While most Wall Street economists forecast the Fed to raise rates by year-end, many of them said the Fed may postpone such ...

US 30-year bonds fall ahead of Fed minutes NEW YORK: US 30-year Treasuries bond prices fell on Wednesday, prompted by worries that the Federal Reserve possibly had a stronger conviction in raising interest rates in the record of its April policy meeting than previously thought.Other Treasuries maturities were steady to slightly higher in prices ahead of the scheduled 2 p.m. (1800 GMT) release of the Federal Open Market Committee's April 28-29 policy meeting."The April FOMC minutes might have a hawkish tone," said Todd ...

US bond prices fall on profit-taking NEW YORK: US Treasuries prices fell on Monday as traders booked profits on last week's gains tied to disappointing data that supported expectations the Federal Reserve might postpone raising interest rates until 2016.Weakness in European government debt markets added selling pressure on their US counterparts, with 30-year yields hovering just below 3 percent."There's been the bias to sell into strength," said Ed Atkins, Treasury strategist at RBS Securities in Stamford, Connecticut. "It seems like Friday's ...
Yields fall as supply eases; German debt steadies NEW YORK: US Treasuries ended stronger on Thursday, even after the Treasury had to pay more to sell new 30-year bonds, as an overhang of government and corporate debt supply passed.The government's $16 billion sale of 30-year bonds saw lackluster demand, resulting in a yield of 3.044 percent, the highest since November and around two basis points above where traders had expected it to price."It was a sizable tail, but I don't think it was ...
Yields rise on supply; demand strong for 10-year auction NEW YORK: US Treasury yields ended higher on Wednesday in choppy trading after the Treasury saw strong demand for a new $24 billion sale of 10-year notes, a sign that higher yields are drawing some buyers back to the market.The government sold the new notes at a yield of 2.237 percent, which was lower than what traders had expected. Dealers bought the lowest share of the notes since July 2012, and the second-lowest portion on ...
