Treasury bonds sold off Friday, pushing up the benchmark 10-year note's yield toward 2%, as anxiety mounted that the Federal Reserve would reduce its bond-buying spree in coming months.
The price weakness capped a third straight weekly loss for the bond market ahead of Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke's testimony before lawmakers next Wednesday.
Mr. Bernanke could spark further selloff or stem the bleeding in the bond market depending on how he casts his stance on the monetary stimulus outlook, traders said.
The benchmark 10-year Treasury note fell by 25/32 in price, pushing up its yield to 1.951%. The yield rose about 0.05 percentage point for the week. Bond prices move inversely to their yields.
The central bank's steady purchases—$45 billion a month in Treasury bonds since the start of the year—have been a major factor holding bond yields near historic lows. The Fed has $1.86 trillion in Treasury bonds, the world's biggest holding of U.S. government debt.
Investors are worried that bond yields could jump if a major buyer retreats at a time when riskier assets have provided much higher returns. U.S. stocks have hit record highs this month.
Debate about when the Fed will start removing its punch bowl has grown for months. But the angst intensified over the past week following a story in The Wall Street Journal that the central bank has mapped out an exit strategy for its unconventional monetary stimulus
A further boost on the anxiety came Thursday afternoon from Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco President John Williams who believes that the central bank may taper buying Treasury bonds as soon as this summer.
Mr. Williams, who doesn't vote on interest-rate policy this year, had advocated for more monetary stimulus to support the economic growth, a stance known as being an interest-rate "dove." Thursday's comment indicated a significant shift in his stance toward the "hawk" camp—where some Fed officials have pushed for the withdrawal of monetary stimulus to prevent inflation risks in the longer term.
"Some doves seem to be swaying," said Tom Tucci, managing director and head of Treasury trading in New York at CIBC World Markets Corp. "The current economic fundamentals don't justify the 10-year yields below 1.85."
Friday's data, which added to the selloff in Treasury bonds, supported bond bears' views that it is time for the central bank to cut back on monetary stimulus.
A gauge of U.S. consumer sentiment hit the highest level since July 2007. A measure of U.S. growth momentum in the coming months posted the biggest increase since February 2012.
After falling to this year's low of 1.61% on May 1, the 10-year note's yield has climbed, touching a two-month peak of 1.985% on May 15.
Mr. Bernanke next week will be a major factor shaping the fortune of bond investors.
"The bond market will sell off if Bernanke indicates that the unemployment rate has come down sufficiently and that he sees enough economic progress to taper the asset purchases," said Larry Milstein, head of government and agency trading at R.W. Pressprich & Co. in New York.
Mr. Milstein said Treasury bonds would rally if Mr. Bernanke states that the economic data of late has been mixed at best, and inflation below the central bank's 2% target and further gains in employment are needed before the Fed eases up on asset purchases.
Some traders remain skeptical that the Fed will move to cut back on bond purchases before the end of the year as the economic outlook remains uncertain.
Bond prices rallied in the previous two sessions fueled by disappointing economic releases. Manufacturing activity in both New York and Mid-Atlantic regions fell, factory orders dropped and initial jobless claims rose.

The economy is scary. The DOW is over 15,000, which means rich people are making a lot of money, but it isn't trickling down. Unemployment is catastrophic. Joblessness doesn't affect just the low end either. College graduates can't find jobs. And they are loaded with student loan debt. There is something like the housing bubble going on in farm land.

I'm afraid that Wall Street is on the way to a crash that will make 2008 look like nothing. Think 1929 Great Depression. Only this time we won't have an FDR and a New Deal to save us. No. This time it will be deadlock in Washington until 2016, and then the Tea Party types who believe in "Austrian economics" will take control and lead the country to ruin.

Thank you.

There are a lot of things about President Obama that I don't like, but I do think that he has more concern for ordinary working people than the "Tea Party" Republicans. The are mostly a bunch of dupes that are being used as a Trojan Horse for a handful of super-rich Libertarians like the Koch brothers. When the crash comes, I think Obama will at least try to do something to help the little people just like FDR did.

Big danger is that the crash will come in 2014 or 2015 and the Second Great Depression that follows will be blamed on Obama and the Democrats. Stupid as a lot of people are, they will probably elect Rand Paul to the White House and give the Republicans control of both houses of Congress in 2016. Then we'll get a kind of "New Deal in Reverse" of the sort prescribed by Murray Rothbard in his book "America's Great Depression".

How many millions did democrat LBJ waste in Vietnam/southeast Asia with "absolutely nothing to show for it" and to top that off Nixon(a republican) only kept the torch lit. only thing that came from this money making extravaganza for the military industrial complex was the demoralizing of the veterans as being terrorists. One such media contrived scenario was John Rambo. Nothing happens in politics by accident so to speak by FDR. On another note, FDR said: "The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.”
This is what is happening today... too many are getting a handout from those who work for it.

There are all kinds of jobs out there to be done. You can mow grass, etc. and do physical work and many illegal immigrants are doing this kinda thing and getting the handouts to boot just cause americans are too fat and sassy to work. Now as for the top notch jobs.... well you might have to submit to a drug test for those and to keep that job. Now I am starting to hit on another problem. Laziness + drugs = unemployment. Is there a common denominator?
However, I do agree a lot of manufacturing jobs have left the country but who are you blaming for that? You can type on a keyboard obviously, so I think you are capable of complaining to your congressmen, or senators, or likewise. I have the same complaints and I am just as guilty of not doing what should have been done years ago and voting whichever way I thought was best. Now and can assure that I did not vote for the present filthy bunch that is running the country now.
