Ten-year US Treasury yield reaches new 2007 high

The yield on the benchmark 10-year United States Treasury note increased on Tuesday to the strongest level since 2007.

The return on the 10-year Treasury note rose by 4.2 basis points to 4.363% at 1:16 pm ET. The yield on the two-year note was up 4.1 basis points to 5.105% at 1:15 pm ET, approaching its own 2007 high. The return on the 30-year bond increased by 3.3 basis points to 4.429% at 3:19 pm ET.
