Treasuries declined, pushing 10-year yields toward the most in more than two weeks, before the U.S.sells $21 billion of the notes, the second of three auctions of coupon-bearing securities this week totaling $66 billion. Thirty-year bonds fell for the fourth time in the past five trading days before the Federal Reserve releases its Beige Book business survey today. Fed Vice Chairman Janet Yellen said asset purchases by the central bank that boost U.S. economic growth will benefit the world. U.S. yields rose before Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy meets French President Francois Hollande in Paris as investors wait to hear if Spain will request a sovereign bailout. “Investors are taking a wait and see stance until we see further developments, particularly in Spain,” said Nick Stamenkovic, a fixed-income strategist at RIA Capital Markets Ltd. in Edinburgh. “The U.S. economy is on a relatively steady footing. Some of the pessimism about the U.S. is overdone” and 10-year yields will rise toward 2 percent by year end, he said.
