TREASURIES-U.S. yields up ahead of $69 bln in new supply, ebbing trade fears

    * U.S. to sell $69 bln coupon-bearing supply 
    * U.S. yield curve stays at flattest level since 2007

    NEW YORK, July 9 (Reuters) - Treasuries yields rose on
Monday as investors moved into equities and freed up cash for
new Treasuries auctions this week, following a strong U.S. jobs
report on Friday and a muted response to the start of U.S.
tariffs on Chinese imports.
    “We had flight to quality because of the trade tariffs. But
I think at the end this doesn’t mean a trade war is really
taking place,” said Tom di Galoma, managing director at Seaport
Global Securities LLC in New York. 
    The yield curve remained near its flattest spread since 2007
on low inflation expectations and rate hikes from the Federal
    Last week's jobs report showed lower-than-expected wage
gains, suggesting that inflation is not accelerating ahead of
this Thursday's core CPI inflation report.
    Investors also made room for $69 billion worth of auctions
in 3-year and 10-year Treasury notes
 and 30-year bonds starting
    Monday's risk-on trade sent global stocks to a two-week
high, marked by a 1.3 percent rise in MSCI's broadest index of
Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan.
    The Nasdaq, S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial average all
opened the week higher than Friday's close.
    The benchmark U.S 10-year note yielded 2.860
percent at 9:42 a.m. EDT (1342 GMT), up 2.7 basis points from
    The yield curve between two-year and 10-year notes
 was slightly higher from the previous week's
close at 28.90 basis points.
