China rate cut boosts U.S. yields at end of flat week

NEW YORK, Oct 23 (Reuters) – U.S. Treasury debt yields

than a year and helped fuel a global rally in equities.

one-year benchmark bank lending rate by 25 basis points to 4.35
percent as part of China’s most aggressive monetary-easing
policy since the 2008-2009 global financial crisis.
