TREASURIES-30-year prices fall to session lows
NEW YORK Dec 3 (Reuters) - Prices on the U.S. 30-year Treasury bond fell to session lows early Monday after a private report showed the U.S. manufacturing sector improved a bit in late November, reducing worries about economic growth.
The Markit U.S. manufacturing index ended at 52.8 in November, compared with a preliminary November reading of 52.4 and a final October figure of 51.4.
The 30-year or long bond was down 26/32 in price for a yield of 2.849 percent, up 4 basis points from late on Friday.
