US bonds slip on housing jump, fewer jobless claims NEW YORK: US Treasury debt prices fell on Thursday, weakened by stronger economic data that favored riskier assets over safe-haven debt.   After falling for four straight sessions to their lowest levels in two weeks and hurt by concern that Congress might not raise the $16.4 trillion federal borrowing limit, Treasury yields rose, moving inversely to prices.   Government data showing the number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefits fell to a five-year low last week and that residential construction surged in December boosted stocks and weakened bonds.   "The jobless claims figures were better than expected and housing starts were very strong.   That pushed the Treasury market off its recent downward trend in yields," said Jon Mackay, senior fixed-income strategist for Morgan Stanley Wealth Management.   Benchmark 10-year notes fell 14/32 in price to 97-26/32, the yields rising to 1.87 percent from 1.82 percent on Wednesday.   "The 10-year yield is close to a 50 percent retracement level ...

US bonds get safety bid before debt ceiling battle NEW YORK: US Treasuries prices rose on Tuesday, drawing a safety bid from weaker stock prices and from a prospective battle in Washington over the government's borrowing limit, and support from large debt purchases by the Federal Reserve.   A refusal by Congress to raise the debt ceiling would raise the risk that the United States would default on its debt by the spring. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke urged lawmakers on Monday to lift the country's borrowing ...
Bonds steady as fresh budget battle looms  LONDON: US Treasuries stabilised in Europe on Thursday as investors focused on fresh US political battles in coming weeks over spending cuts, halting a sell-off that followed a deal to avoid sharp tax hikes.   US benchmark 10-year T-note yields were last at 1.837 percent, unchanged from late New York levels. The yields retreated slightly away from a 3-month high of 1.86 percent reached on Wednesday as bonds sold off after US lawmakers reached a deal to ...
US stock index futures surge on fiscal deal PARIS: US stock index futures pointed to a higher open on Wall Street on Wednesday after lawmakers passed a bill preventing huge tax hikes and spending cuts that had threatened to push the economy into recession.   Futures for the S&P 500 were up 1.7 percent, Dow Jones futures were up 1.2 percent and Nasdaq 100 futures up 1.3 percent at 1103 GMT.   The House of Representatives voted for a bill passed on Monday by the Senate that ...
US bond prices slip in somnolent trading  NEW YORK: U.S. government debt prices slipped on Monday as most traders moved to the sidelines before Christmas and given the absence of a US budget deal that averts a package of automatic tax hikes and spending cuts going into effect next year.   Analysts downplayed the day's price moves as signals of shifts in market sentiment.   There was little impetus for investors to change their bond positions without fresh US economic data or the Federal Reserve buying ...
US 10 year yields hold near 3 week lows on Fed hopes  LONDON: US benchmark Treasury yields held near three-week lows on Thursday with no sign of an imminent breakthrough in budget talks to avert a sharp fiscal tightening that could undermine the economic recovery.   Although many investors expect political leaders in Washington to eventually reach a deal to avert a fiscal contraction early next year as spending cuts kick in and tax cuts expire, there was no sign of progress in talks on Wednesday.   The 10-year T-notes last ...
US 30-year bond extends gain to one point  NEW YORK: US 30-year Treasury bonds extended an early price gain to one point on Monday as investors sought safety amid concern about possible US fiscal contraction in 2013 and the euro zone.   The 30-year bond, which had been up more than 3/4 of a point, extended that gain to a point, allowing its yield to ease to 2.78 percent from 2.83 percent late on Friday.   Copyright Reuters, 2012 ...
