  • U.S. Treasuries have spent the early portion of today's session near their flat lines. The long bond and the 10-yr note inched higher at the start of the session while shorter tenors started a touch behind. The 30-yr bond remains in the green by a slim margin while the 10-yr note has dipped back into the red after the opening uptick pressured the benchmark yield to a low (1.628%) just beneath its 50-day moving average (1.629%). Equities started on a weak note, though they have recovered some of their losses in recent action, leaving the S&P 500 with a loss of 0.4%.
