During Tuesday’s session, U.S. government debt yields slipped as stocks in the States saw a volatile trading session. After two major sell-offs, leading U.S. indexes saw sharp swings, with the Dow Jones industrial average starting Tuesday significantly lower, before rallying and closing up 567.02 points at 24,912.77.
