NEW YORK (dpa-AFX) – The prices of US government bonds rose predominantly on Tuesday. Concerns about a second wave of infections in the corona crisis came to the fore again somewhat more strongly in the financial markets. This provided a boost after Monday’s fixed income prices were weighed down by better-than-expected economic indicators from leading economies.
Two-year bonds remained at 100 1/32 points. They paid 0.109 percent. Five-year bonds gained 4/32 points to 100 9/32 points. Their return was 0.190 percent. Trend-setting ten-year papers rose 14/32 points to 101 3/32 points. They paid 0.509 percent. Long bonds with a term of thirty years rose by 1 4/32 points to 101 19/32 points. Their return was 1.186 percent./la/he
