Treasuries were enduring a choppy session following the

Federal Open Market Committee's decision to stand pat on interest rates. Around 6 p.m. EDT, government notes and bonds were uniformly lower.

The two-year note was down 1/32 to 100 15/32, yielding 3.12%. The five-year was off 2/32 to 96 19/32, with a yield of 4.34%, and the 10-year was lower by 3/32 to 98 17/32, yielding 5.07%. The 30-year bond was down 3/32 to 97 20/32, yielding 5.54%.

Earlier in the day, Treasuries were higher across the board, but most issues spent time alternating between positive and negative territory.
