US 10-year yield hits record low 1.44pc  NEW YORK: US government debt yields dropped to record lows on Friday after a stunningly weak report on US job growth stoked worries of an economic slowdown and raised bets for a third round of bond purchases from the Federal Reserve. The soft US employment figures reinforced the view of a global economic slowdown, caused in part by Europe's debt crisis that has raged for more than two years. Contagion fears from a possible Greek exit from the euro and Spain's banking troubles have further driven this week's stampede into cash and low-risk government debt. US Treasuries' rock-bottom yields and Washington's own fiscal problems have not deterred the global chase for investment safe-havens, analysts and investors said. "There is a potential for Treasuries to go up in price in a further flight-to-quality," said Bill Irving, a portfolio manager with Fidelity Investments in Merrimack, New Hampshire, who oversees about $45 billion in bonds. US Treasuries just ...

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 ...
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 ...
