NEW YORK Aug 14 U.S. 30-year Treasuries yield
fell to session lows Thursday afternoon, prompted by strong
demand at a $16 billion auction of a 30-year issue, the last leg
of this week's $67 billion quarterly refunding.
Strong investor demand pushed the yield on the latest
30-year supply to clear at 3.224 percent, which was the lowest
level since May 2013, data from the Treasury Department showed.
On the open market, the yield on the most actively traded
30-year bond originally issued in May was last
quoted at 3.213 percent, down 2.8 basis points from late on
Wednesday. It touched a session low of 3.203 percent shortly
after the 30-year auction results were released.
