Earlier in the day, the 30-year bond yields, which move in the opposite direction compared to bond prices, fell to a new all-time low.

The US 2-year note yield was at 1.49%, declining by 0.087 basis points at 2:08 pm ET. The yield on the 10-year Treasury was 1.512%, down by 0.068 basis points at 2:10 pm ET, only minutes after hitting 1.5%.
