NEW YORK, March 19
NEW YORK, March 19 (Reuters) - U.S. 30-year Treasury bond prices extended gains a full point on Tuesday, as fears that Cyprus's debt problems would extend to other countries in the euro zone added a bid for the safe haven U.S. debt.
The bonds were last up 31/32 in price to yield 3.14 percent, down from 3.18 percent late on Monday.
