[$$] U.S. Government Bonds Fall Before Auctions

U.S. government bond prices fell Monday as investors looked ahead to a series of Treasury note and bond auctions this week. The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note rose for a second consecutive trading session, settling at 2.724% from 2.690% Friday. Yields, which climb as bond prices fall, rose as investors faced the prospect of absorbing a fresh supply of three-, 10- and 30-year securities.
