TREASURIES-U.S. yields fall further after Trump's remarks on rate hikes

NEW YORK, July 19 (Reuters) - U.S. Treasury yields fell to session lows on Thursday after U.S. President Donald Trump told CNBC television he is “not thrilled” about interest rate increases by the Federal Reserve.

At 1:14 p.m. (1714 GMT), the benchmark 10-year Treasury yield was 2.840 percent, down 3 basis points from late Wednesday. This pared the flattening of the two-year to 10-year area of the yield curve to 25.10 basis points . (Reporting by Richard Leong Editing by James Dalgleish)
