Wall Street Journal: Treasurys Swing Higher After New-Home Sales Lower

The newly revealed weakness in the nation's housing sector underscored the dependence of the economic recovery on cheaper financing, a key factor that will hold interest rates from racing higher this year.

U.S. Treasurys rallied strongly last week, as a selloff in global equity and currency markets prompted investors to flee risky assets and take shelter in the safe-haven market. Yields on the benchmark 10-year Treasury notes fell to 2.737% at Friday's close, the lowest level in two months.

Nobody could have smelled that coming! ;)
