U.S. sovereign bond prices rose Tuesday as markets reopened after the Memorial Day weekend and digested a raft of data.
The yield on the 10-year Treasury note, which moves inversely to its price, dipped to 1.846 percent, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond slid to 2.645 percent. Two-year yields dropped to 0.879 percent.
