Bond yields fall on weak data before 10-year supply

NEW YORK, Aug 13 (Reuters) – U.S. Treasury debt yields fell
on Wednesday as disappointing data on U.S. retail sales revived
bets the Federal Reserve might leave policy rates near zero for
a longer period in a bid to keep the economic recovery on track.

The decline in bond yields was limited ahead of a $24
billion auction in 10-year notes at 1 p.m. (1700 GMT) and
Thursday’s $16 billion sale of 30-year bonds, which some traders
reckon might not fetch strong demand due to their low yields.

U.S. bond yields rise before longer-dated supply

NEW YORK, Aug 12 (Reuters) – U.S. Treasury debt yields rose
on Tuesday as traders sold some bond holdings in advance of a
combined $40 billion in longer-dated supply, which some traders
worry might not lure strong demand due to their low yields.

Wednesday’s auction of $24 billion in 10-year notes and
Thursday’s $16 billion sale of 30-year securities follow solid
results at the $27 billion three-year note auction.

U.S. bond yields edge up before 3-year auction

NEW YORK, Aug 12 (Reuters) – U.S. Treasury debt yields
inched higher on Tuesday as traders sold some bond holdings in
advance of a $27 billion auction of three-year notes, part of
this week’s $67 billion quarterly government refunding.

The selling pressure from this week’s bond supply has been
offset by a steady bid for safe-haven Treasuries on worries
about conflicts in Iraq, eastern Ukraine and Gaza. Benchmark
10-year yields have lingered not far from last week’s 14-month
low of 2.349 percent.

U.S. bond yields steady on Middle East, Ukraine jitters

NEW YORK, Aug 11 (Reuters) – U.S. government debt yields
were little changed on Monday, hovering near recent lows as
traders clung to their safe-haven bond holdings on anxiety about
tensions in the Middle East and Ukraine.

Benchmark 10-year yields were not far from last week’s
14-month lows on bets that the possible spread of conflicts in
Iraq, eastern Ukraine and the Gaza Strip would hurt the global
economy.

US bond yields up on hopes of less fighting in Middle East, Iraq

NEW YORK, Aug 11 (Reuters) – U.S. government debt yields
edged higher on Monday from their recent lows as traders trimmed
safe-haven bond holdings and stepped back into stocks on hopes
of reduced tensions in the Middle East.

Benchmark 10-year yields retraced from last week’s 14-month
lows on a 72-hour truce between Israelis and Palestinians as
both sides sought to end their month-old war in Gaza.
