TREASURIES-U.S. yield curve hits flattest in a decade

NEW YORK, Nov 6 (Reuters) - The yield gap between short-dated and long-dated Treasury yields early Monday shrank to its tightest levels in a decade as low domestic inflation has buttressed demand for longer-maturity government bond.

The spread between two-year and 10-year Treasury yield touched 70.5 basis points, a level not seen since Nov. 6, 2007, Reuters data showed. (Reporting by Richard Leong)
