U.S. sovereign bond prices were higher Monday, recovering after hitting fresh lows late last week, ahead of the Federal Reserve's interest rate decision.
The yield on the 10-year Treasury note, which moves inversely to its price, moved lower to 1.6174 percent, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was down at 2.4369 percent. Meanwhile, two-year note yields also fell, last trading at 0.7183 percent.
Fed-watchers are awaiting the central bank's interest rate decision, due Wednesday. Expectations for a rate rise have significantly decreased over recent weeks, in part thanks to worse-than-expected non-farm payrolls figures for May.

We've seen heavy selling and shortened our Brexit market price from over 80 percent - implying a one-in-five chance of Britain leaving the EU – to 66 percent, which indicates a one-in-three chance of Brexit," Joe Rundle, the head of trading at U.K. spread better ETX Capital, said in a morning note.
