TODAY’s FACTORS AND EVENTS
The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury notes, which moves inversely to price, was higher at around 2.348 percent, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was also higher at 2.866 percent.
On the data front, Wednesday will see factory orders for May released at around 10 a.m. ET, while the much-anticipated release of last month’s FOMC minutes is set for around 2 p.m.
The minutes are from the June 14 meeting when the FOMC raised rates for a second time this year and revealed details on how it intends to gradually begin paring back its more than $4.5 trillion balance sheet. The markets have doubted the Fed will hike rates for a third time this year, giving just about 50 percent odds for a September rate rise.
