US 10-year notes edge higher as equities falter  SINGAPORE: US 10-year Treasuries rose and the 10-year yield hovered near a three-week low in Asia on Monday, as weakness in equities helped support demand for safe haven debt, with moves exaggerated by thin volumes.   Ten-year Treasuries rose around 4/32 in price to yield 1.618 percent in Asia, down roughly 2 basis points from late US trade on Friday and not far from Friday's trough of 1.599 percent, the 10-year yield's lowest level since Sept. 7.   A drop in equities helped lend support to Treasuries, said a trader for a US brokerage house in Tokyo.   "Whenever we see risk assets in our session trade heavy like it is now, it is tough for us to want to go the other way," he said, adding that trading volumes were low with Chinese markets closed this week for public holidays.   In the stock market, MSCI's index of Asia-Pacific shares excluding Japan fell 0.4 percent.   A near-term focal ...

US 10-year notes firmer in Asia but gains limited  SINGAPORE: US 10-year Treasuries rose in Asia on Friday but their gains were limited after Spain announced a tough 2013 budget that may pave the way for central bank action to help ease the euro zone's debt crisis.   Ten-year notes rose around 2/32 in price to yield 1.647 percent, down roughly 1 basis point from late US trade.   Ten-year Treasuries had retreated on Thursday after Spain announced a budget for 2013 based mostly on spending cuts, a ...
Bond yields near 3-week low on euro zone woes  TOKYO: US Treasuries were firm in Asia on Thursday, with the benchmark 10-year yield stuck near its lowest level in nearly three weeks, supported by resurgent worries over the euro zone's debt crisis and demand for mortgage bonds.   The yield on 10-year notes stood at 1.625 percent, near Wednesday's low of 1.610 percent, its lowest since Sept 7, having fallen almost 30 basis points from a four-month peak hit earlier this month.   The rally was driven in ...
Bonds extend winning streak on Spain jitters NEW YORK: US government debt prices rose on Wednesday for an eighth straight session on worries Spain's reluctance to ask for a full-blown bailout would prolong Europe's debt crisis. The Treasuries market, as measured by the benchmark 10-year note, was on track to match its longest winning streak since late November to early December 2008, according to Reuters data. Longer-dated US yields touched their lowest levels in more than two weeks since they spiked earlier this month ...
Growth concerns boost bid for Treasuries NEW YORK: Concerns about growth highlighted by the fifth straight monthly drop in German business sentiment weakened equities and the euro and boosted safe-haven US Treasuries on Monday. Long-dated Treasuries outperformed, balancing out their underperformance on Friday. Stock index futures slipped. The euro was hurt by the German sentiment survey and uncertainty about Spain's progress toward asking for a bailout. Business sentiment in Germany, the strongest of the euro zone's economies, fell in September, despite the European Central ...
Bonds supported in Asia as inflation fears ease  TOKYO: US Treasuries were supported in Asia on Thursday, with yields paring much of their rise since the Federal Reserve' stimulus steps on growing views that such aggressive easing may not trigger inflation.   The 10-year notes traded at a yield of 1.768 percent , little changed from the late US session but near the lowest level since last Friday.   Although it is still above the level just before the Fed announced a new asset purchase programme, dubbed ...
US 10-year notes rise, get respite after sell-off  SINGAPORE: US 10-year Treasuries rose on Wednesday, getting some respite from a recent sell-off that came as the Federal Reserve's new monetary stimulus bolstered inflation expectations and whetted investor appetite for risky assets.   Ten-year Treasuries rose 4/32 in price to yield roughly 1.798 percent, down 1 basis point from late US trade on Tuesday and below a four-month high around 1.89 percent hit on Friday.   The 10-year notes have regained some footing after Friday's sharp sell-off, which ...
