While stock investors struggled to sort out the mixed signals from Washington, the Treasury market signaled broad skepticism that a stimulus package would be reached this year. The 10-year Treasury note was recently gaining 14/32 to 99 17/32, yielding 5.06% as investors apparently bet against fiscal relief before Christmas. The long bond was up 21/32 to 98 25/32, yielding 5.46%, while the 5-year note was up 4/32 to 96 4/32, yielding 4.39%.
