The yield on the 10-year notes stood at 2.20 percent , little changed from late US levels but up from a two-week low of 2.16 percent hit before Wednesday's auction of five-year notes drew weak demand. The Treasury Department's sale of $29 billion in seven-year notes was expected to mirror the results of the five-year auction, keeping debt prices subdued. The market was, however, still seeing underlying support after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's assurances earlier this week that US interest rates will remain low for an extended period. "Going forward these yield levels have brought out some real money accounts especially overseas accounts who had missed the latest trade up have started to take a bite out of the market," a trader ...

TOKYO: US Treasuries held firm in Asia, with yields on 10-year bonds near a two-week low on Wednesday after Federal Reserver Chairman Ben Bernanke suggested he is still committed to keeping easy policy in place despite some signs of recovery in the US economy.
