Bonds Rebound, Nat Gas Slides: Market Bits


NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- U.S. Treasury bonds were reversing earlier losses after a key Federal Reserve policy maker reaffirmed the central bank's intention to follow through on stimulus plans, despite more signs that the economy has recovered.

The two-year note firmed 1/32, with the yield falling to 0.821%. The ten-year note was ticking 0/32 higher, with the yield pushed down to 3.468% and the 30-year bond increased 3/32, lowering the yield to 4.505%.

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York President, William C. Dudley, told the press, during a visit to San Juan, Puerto Rico, that the central bank still plans follow through with its $600 billion treasury-buying program.

Dudley said the program, expected to conclude at the end of June, was still necessary because of the shaky economic recovery. The policy maker spoke after a strong jobs report was published Friday.






Natural gas futures tumbled Friday on milder weather.

Natural gas for May delivery fell 2% to $4.30 per million British thermal units, breaking a two-day winning streak.

"The heat that was in the West finally plods over to the East Coast by next Thursday, breaking up the cold snap in all but the northernmost parts of New England," a Gelber Natural Gas report stated.

Natural gas players were mostly heading higher Friday afternoon.

Devon Energy (DVN) gained 0.7% to $92.38, Newfield Exploration (NFX) added 0.3% to $76.22, Cheniere Energy Partners, L.P. (CQP) ticked up 0.2% to $19.12, Cheniere Energy, Inc. (LNG) fell 0.1% to $9.30 and EOG Resources (EOG) increased 0.3% to $118.89.

Meanwhile, Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP (KMP) was flat at $74.12 and BP (BP) was spiking 3.9% to $45.86.0
