Treasury yields rise as investors look ahead to Fed meeting

FXStreet (Mumbai) - The yield on the long duration and short duration treasuries advanced on Monday as FOMC meeting on Wednesday is widely expected to end with a rate hike for the first time in almost a decade.

At the time of writing, the 10-year yield was up 3.7bps at 2.176%. The more policy sensitive the 2-yr yield advanced 2bps to 0.915%.
