NEW YORK, March 9 (Reuters) - U.S. Treasury yields held near session peaks on Thursday following a $12 billion auction of 30-year government bonds that fetched average demand and the highest yield since September 2014.
At 1:20 p.m. (1820 GMT), the yield on benchmark 10-year Treasury notes was up 3 basis points at 2.582 percent on the open market, while the 30-year yield was 2 basis points higher at 3.170 percent. They touched their highest in about 11 weeks earlier Thursday after the European Central Bank signaled less urgency to provide more monetary stimulus.
