On Wednesday U.S. Treasury yields ebbed lower after President Donald Trump acknowledged that there would be no economic stimulus deal before the U.S. election next week.
The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note fell to 0.756% at 4:26 a.m. ET, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond slipped to 1.542%. Yields move inversely to prices. Yields slumped after President Trump reportedly said on Tuesday: “After the election, we’ll get the best stimulus package you’ve ever seen.”
The White House and congressional Democrats have failed to so far reach an agreement over certain terms in the stimulus package. The U.S. has also continued to see an uptick in cases of the coronavirus in recent days.
Auctions will be held Wednesday for $25 billion worth of 105-day bills, along with $30 billion worth of 154-day bills. Another $55 billion in 5 year notes also go up for sale today, as well as $26 billion of 2 year floating-rate notes
