After moving higher over the three previous sessions, treasuries gave back some ground during the trading day on Tuesday. Bond prices climbed off their worst levels after an early move to the downside but remained in negative territory. Subsequently, the yield on the benchmark ten-year note, which moves opposite of its price, rose by 2.8 basis points to 0.698 percent. The pullback by treasuries came as separate reports on consumer confidence and Chicago-area business activity showed deteriorations in March but still came in well above economist estimates.
