US Treasuries trim gains after jobless data  NEW YORK: US Treasuries trimmed modest gains on Thursday after the US Labor Department's count of new filings for jobless benefits was lower than economists had forecast.   The benchmark 10-year yield stood at 1.68 percent after the report.   New jobless claims fell to 355,000 in the week ended Saturday, below the 370,000 median forecast in a Reuters poll.   A Labor Department analyst said Sandy, a mammoth storm that slammed into the East Coast on Oct. 29, boosted claims in some states by leaving people out of work, but also reduced claims in at least one state because power outages kept the state from collecting claim reports.   The storm could continue to affect the claims report for several more weeks, the analyst said.   Copyright Reuters, 2012 ...

Treasuries range-bound before Fed, supply  LONDON: US Treasuries were range-bound on Wednesday as the market prepared for more supply and as investors did not expect the Federal Reserve to change its current policy in the last monetary policy meeting before presidential elections.   US 10-year government bond yields were up 1.6 basis points at 1.78 percent, a whisker away from a 200-day moving average at 1.805 percent. Bonds came under pressure after gaining on Tuesday on strong results in a sale of ...
US 10-year yield steady, stays in familiar range  SINGAPORE: The US 10-year Treasury yield held steady within a recent range on Tuesday, as investors awaited the November US presidential election and further clarity on when Spain may ask for a rescue package.   Ten-year Treasuries fetched an yield of 1.668 percent . Since late September, the 10-year yield has moved in a range of roughly 1.600 percent to 1.750 percent.   "You have to consider whether forthcoming events might  trigger a rise in volatility, or whether traders ...
US 10-year notes supported by fears of slowing growth  TOKYO: US Treasuries were steady in Asian trading on Wednesday, as continued fears of slowing global growth kept demand for fixed-income assets firm.   Yields on ten-year Treasuries slipped in Asia to 1.714 percent from 1.715 percent in late US trade on Tuesday.   The 10-year yield had hit a peak around 1.74 percent on Friday, the highest level in about two weeks, after better-then-expected US employment data.   Yields on 30-year Treasuries were steady from late US trade at 2.930 ...
Paid dollar bonds in pesos: Argentina BUENOS AIRES: Argentina's Chaco province made a dollar-denominated bond interest payment in local pesos last week due to the country's policy of limiting access to greenbacks, the province said over the weekend.   The payment of about $260,000 in pesos rather than US dollars surprised the local capital markets, and may set a precedent for other borrowers in the South American country to pay dollar-denominated debt in local currency.   "Compliance in a timely manner of the obligation was ...
US 10 year notes supported by weak China data  SINGAPORE: US 10-year Treasuries pushed higher on Wednesday after a survey showed that China's services sector weakened sharply last month, reinforcing investor concerns about global economic growth.   Ten-year notes rose 5/32 in price to yield roughly 1.603 percent, down 2 basis points from late US trade on Tuesday.   China's official purchasing managers' index for the services sector fell to 53.7 in September, the lowest point since November 2010, according to the latest survey from the National Bureau ...
