NEW YORK: US government debt prices fell on Tuesday as the US manufacturing sector unexpectedly grew at its strongest pace in 10 months, reducing expectations the US economy is faltering and will need more stimulus from the Federal Reserve. Benchmark yields, however, are still hovering at their lowest levels in nearly three months on the perception that a recession is spreading across Europe and high US unemployment remains a drag on economic growth. The Institute for Supply Management said its index on US nationwide factory activity rose to 54.8 in April, up from 53.4 in March. Economists had predicted ISM's factory activity index, which the Fed monitors, likely slipped to 53.0 last month. "This is a real positive for the economy because it's so strong," James Newman, head of Treasuries and agency trading at Keefe, Bruyette and Woods in New York, said of the latest US ISM factory report. "But it does come ...

NEW YORK: Prices on US 30-year Treasury bonds briefly fell one full point early Monday, extending earlier losses with German Bunds, after a magazine report that Germany was considering combining two bailout funds temporarily to deal with the region's debt crisis. The 30-year bond last traded down 29/32 in price for a yield of 3.36 percent, up 5 basis points from late Friday. The 30-year yield is flirting with its 200-day moving average of 3.3717, according to ...
Long bond yields fall, higher yields may lie ahead        NEW YORK: US Treasury debt prices posted modest gains on Tuesday, but selling still pushed some yields to multimonth highs as traders focused on the idea that a stronger economy could mean quicker inflation and monetary policy tightening sooner than expected. Price losses were limited, however, and gains returned to the longest-dated US debt - 10-year notes and 30-year bonds. Recent data has revealed slightly more strength in the US economy than many economists were expecting. While ...
US bonds fall as safe-haven allure fades           NEW YORK: US Treasuries prices slipped on Friday, on the defensive amid global equity market strength as some upbeat economic data encouraged investors to lighten up on safe-haven assets. Stocks opened higher on Wall Street after the S&P 500 finished above 1,400 for the first time since 2008. Overnight, European stocks neared a 7-1/2-month high. In contrast, the benchmark 10-year Treasury note was down 20/32, its yield rising to 2.35 percent from 2.28 percent late on Thursday. Treasuries ...
US Treasuries fall before auction, Fed statement        NEW YORK: US Treasuries' prices retreated on Tuesday before a 10-year note auction and ahead of a Federal Reserve policy statement that is expected to reflect little change in monetary policy. The largest rise in US retail sales in five months, reported by the Commerce Department, reinforced the bond market's bearish cast, as did the fifth day in a row of the stock market gains, which dulled demand for safe-haven US government debt. Before this afternoon's $21 ...

French daily Les Echos said, without citing its sources, that the rating agency would spare Germany, the Netherlands, Finland and Luxembourg in its long-awaited adjustment of euro zone sovereign ratings. It said the announcement would come at around 2130 GMT. Benchmark 10-year Treasury notes were up ...
