Treasuries rise, 30-year yield holds under 2%

Prices jumped on Thursday for United States government debt in a continued wave of buying after the worst selloff on Wall Street this year.

Ten-year yields fell under two-year rates yesterday.

The first inverted yield curve in the key section in 12 years came after in March the difference between ten-year and three-month rates, also a widely watched indicator, turned negative. Yields on thirty-year Treasury bonds dropped under 2% for the first time and went on to land at 1.964%.

The two-year US yield was 2.5 basis points in the red at 1.555% at 1:48 am ET. The 10-year gauge dropped 2.5 points to 1.556% and zigzagged in an out of inversion. The 30-year yield was 4.1 points lower at 1.979%. Corresponding futures gained 0.03%, 0.1% and 0.36%, respectively.
