US bond prices steady before Fed policy meeting NEW YORK: Most US Treasuries prices were little changed on Tuesday in light, choppy trading, as investors awaited the outcome of the Federal Reserve's two-day meeting for signs whether the US central bank might scale back its current stimulus program.The Fed's policy statement, to be released after the close of the meeting on Wednesday afternoon, could affirm remarks by Chairman Ben Bernanke last month that the US central bank may decide to trim the amount of bond purchases in the next few meetings if the economic recovery maintains momentum."It's very complicated for the Fed," said Guy LeBas, chief fixed income strategist at Janney Montgomery Scott in Philadelphia. "On the one hand their policies aren't having a huge impact on economic growth going forward, on the other hand they need to maintain the ability to act in case deflation does occur."The Fed's $85 billion monthly purchases of Treasuries and mortgage-backed securities ...

US bonds gain on safety bid as ADP data disappoint NEW YORK: US Treasuries prices rose on Wednesday as weak economic data spurred safe-haven bids, with investors waiting for government payroll numbers later in the week to help clarify whether the Fed could soon pause its massive stimulus program.A report by payrolls processor ADP showed US private employers added 135,000 jobs in May, less than the 165,000 expected in a Reuters poll.Bond prices rose on the ADP news and again when service-sector data from the ...
Bond prices surge briefly after false explosion tweet NEW YORK: US Treasuries prices were little changed on Tuesday after a brief surge on a false Twitter message from the Associated Press that said there were two explosions at the White House.The tweet, which an AP spokesman called "bogus," raised concerns of another terror attack just a week after the Boston Marathon bombs and caused a short-lived scramble for safe-haven US bonds.When the AP tweet was retracted, buying of Treasuries faded, sending prices back ...
Yields stay low on waning inflation NEW YORK: US government debt prices rose on Monday on news of weaker-than-expected home resales in March and the implications of waning inflation.Slower inflation causes real interest rates to rise and leaves the door open for the Federal Reserve to continue its large-scale purchases of bonds and even to increase them.Federal Reserve Bank of New York President William Dudley told a conference on transatlantic economic interdependence on Monday that the US central bank's stimulative asset-purchase ...
Prices gain as stock slump spurs safety bid NEW YORK: Prices for US Treasuries gained on Wednesday as sinking stock prices spooked investors into scooping up safe-haven government debt.Major US stock indexes posted losses of more than 1 percent, a third straight session of swings of that magnitude.Commodities were sinking similarly on Wednesday, with Brent crude oil below $99 per barrel on expectations that slower economic growth will lessen demand for oil."As soon as the buying direction came from the Weidmann comments this ...
US bond prices rise, though Japanese bids elusive NEW YORK: US Treasuries prices rose on Thursday as a three-day rise in yields lured investors to buy government debt both on the open market and at a $13 billion auction of 30-year bonds, the final part of this week's $66 billion in longer-dated supply.Thursday's 30-year bond sale fetched lukewarm demand, and the data of all three auctions this week suggested that an anticipated surge in US bond demand from Japanese banks, insurers and pension ...
US bonds rally on Japan's move, job worries NEW YORK: The US Treasury debt market rallied on Thursday as investors sought higher-yielding dollar assets after the Bank of Japan said it would step up asset purchases to boost its economy, sending Japanese bond yields to record lows.A surprise jump in domestic jobless claims undermined recent optimism about an improving labor market and fueled bets the Federal Reserve would cling to its own large-scale asset purchase program this year to cut unemployment, analysts said.The ...
