March 30-year bonds trended lower throughout most of the session and broke down to a new five-day low. Right from the start of the session, it appeared that there was an improvement in risk-taking attitudes on hopes that Greece and European leaders were close to a bailout decision. While reduced safe-haven demand for US Treasuries pressured the market lower, March 30-Year bonds remained in the middle of the January through February trading range. Some traders noted a level of interest in 10-Year Notes in the cash market after yields climbed back above the 2.0% handle. The late week-decline in March Bond prices put them around 1-0 point lower on the week.
