TUESDAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

U.S. government debt prices were slightly higher on Tuesday, as another meeting by the U.S. Federal Reserve begins.

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note was lower at around 2.686 percent at 5:15 a.m. ET, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was lower at 2.938 percent. Bond yields move inversely to prices.

In the previous session, the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note rose to its highest since April 2014, as investors grew hopeful on the state of the U.S. economy — with a weaker U.S. dollar having also helped boost yields as of late.

 Another factor expected to keep the bond markets on edge is the latest meeting by the U.S. central bank.
