Treasuries were recently edging to the upside, but the gains were limited across all maturities Wednesday.
Short-term notes were the most sluggish. The two-year was up 1/32 in price to 100 11/32, yielding 4.56%, and the three-year was adding 1/32 to 100 22/32, yielding 4.50%. The five-year was gaining 2/32 to 100 23/32, yielding 4.46%.
Yields and prices move in opposite directions.
On the longer side, the 10-year was up 3/32 to 100 28/32, yielding 4.51%, and the 30-year bond was ahead by 4/32 to 101 18/32 and yielding 4.65%.
In the currency market, the dollar was generally weaker, falling against the yen, the euro, the pound and the Swiss franc. The Canadian dollar was a bit softer against the greenback.
