U.S. 10-year Treasury yields rise to highest since Sept 2014
SINGAPORE, Jan 19 (Reuters) - The U.S. 10-year Treasury yield rose to a three-year high on Friday, with market players citing worries of a possible U.S. government shutdown as a factor weighing on sentiment, and a possible unwinding of yield curve flattening trades.
The 10-year Treasury yield rose to as high as 2.642 percent in Friday's Asian trading, their highest levels since September 2014. The 10-year Treasury yield last stood at 2.6407 percent, up from Thursday's U.S. close of 2.611 percent.
