Yields climb to one-week peaks on upbeat US data NEW YORK: US Treasury debt yields rose to one-week highs on Monday after data showed US manufacturing activity rebounded in May and construction spending improved, suggesting the world's largest economy was on a more steady path to recovery after a soft patch in the first quarter. Treasury debt prices, which move inversely to yields, were also weighed down by profit-taking and unwinding of month-end demand as investors braced for a spate of economic data this week that could provide further clues about the timing of a Federal Reserve rate hike. The Institute for Supply Management said its index of national factory activity rose to 52.8 in May, from April's 51.5. The ISM number topped expectations of 52.0, according to a Reuters poll of economists. Another report showed that US construction spending surged in April to the highest in nearly 6-1/2 years as outlays increased broadly. "We had some numbers today ...

Short-dated yields up on Fed rate hike bets; 30-yr yields slip NEW YORK: Short-dated US Treasury yields hit two-week highs on Tuesday on continued expectations that the Federal Reserve would hike rates this year, while yields on longer-dated Treasuries slid on concerns over Greece and global economic growth. US two- and three-year yields, which are sensitive to expectations on when the Fed will hike rates, hit two-week highs of 0.65 percent and 1.03 percent, respectively, after traders took a sanguine view of US durable goods orders ...
