Shorter-dated Treasuries initially gained ground on the Fed's statement, which highlighted that the economy had overcome a first-quarter slowdown and was now "expanding modestly." The Fed, as expected, left in place its zero interest rate policy. "It looks like from the statement they slightly upgraded their language on the labor market," said Shyam Rajan, head of US interest rate strategy at Bank of America Merrill Lynch."They slightly lowered the hurdle for a rate hike by adding the word 'some' to their conditions required for further improvement in the labor market. Once the market got wind of that change some of the early dovish interpretation was taken out.Therefore some ...

Investors were heartened by Chinese equity ...

Longer-term Treasury prices improved, while short-term prices were mixed. "The overnight action with the flight to quality in China, and Europe as well, is a continuation of a larger move in the last six to eight trading sessions of a relentless ...

Prices edge up as US new-home sales fall NEW YORK: US Treasury debt prices drifted higher on Friday in choppy trading, as investors sought safety in government bonds after a softer-than-expected US housing report and amid a persistent downtrend in commodities and weakness on Wall Street. US 30-year bond yields, which move inversely to prices, fell to a seven-week low, while benchmark US 10-year yields slid to a two-week trough. An unexpected drop in US new-home sales further underpinned the rally in the ...
