Yields fall to lowest in three weeks on US GDP data NEW YORK: US Treasury yields fell on Friday, with benchmark and long-dated US yields hitting their lowest in over three weeks, as data showing the US economy contracted in the first quarter supported views of a later Federal Reserve interest-rate hike. The government slashed its gross domestic product estimate to show GDP shrinking at a 0.7 percent annual rate, instead of the 0.2 percent growth it estimated last month. Still, the reading was a touch better than economists' expectations for a drop of 0.8 percent. The data supported an expectation that the Fed would have to consider signs of weakness in the US economy before hiking interest rates for the first time in nearly a decade. Fed rate hikes are expected to hurt bond prices, which move inversely to yields. "The market simply doesn't believe the data will be strong enough to let the Fed (boost rates) this year," said ...

US bonds rise as Fed minutes hint June rate hike unlikely NEW YORK: US Treasuries prices rose on Wednesday as the minutes from Federal Reserve's April policy meeting reinforced the view the central bank will likely leave interest rates near zero in June due to lingering concerns about the US economy.Longer-dated bonds erased earlier losses that had been caused by worries that the Fed was possibly more determined to raise interest rates in June than previously thought."Many participants, however, thought it unlikely that the data available ...
