TREASURIES-Thirty-year bonds fall a point in price
NEW YORK Nov 20 (Reuters) - U.S. 30-year Treasury bonds fell over a point in price on Tuesday in thin trading as investors took greater hope that lawmakers in Washington will reach a deal to avert a budget crisis.
New supply of $13 billion in Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities scheduled for Wednesday added to selling pressure as dealers prepared to absorb the new sale.
The bonds were last down 1-4/32 in price to yield 2.81 percent, up from 2.76 percent late on Monday.
