US 10-year TIPS breakeven rate rises after auction NEW YORK: The US bond market's gauge of inflation expectations in the next 10 years climbed to its strongest level in more than a week on Thursday following robust demand at $13 billion auction of 10-year Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS).

Bond yields fall as sliding oil prices hint at mild inflation NEW YORK: US intermediate- and long-dated Treasury yields hit their lowest in over two weeks on Tuesday after further declines in oil prices underscored mild inflation, while weak US economic data pointed to a more dovish Federal Reserve.
