    NEW YORK, Oct 6 (Reuters) - U.S. Treasury yields dropped
from four-month peaks after President Donald Trump on Tuesday
called off negotiations with Democratic lawmakers on a
coronavirus relief stimulus package until after the Nov. 3
    In an about-face from his administration's stance of
committing to a stimulus package before the election, Trump
accused House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi of not
negotiating in good faith.
    U.S. yields dropped across the board.
    In afternoon trading, U.S. 10-year yields
dropped to 0.738%, from 0.762% late on Monday, after earlier
rising to 0.792%, the highest level since June.
    Yields on U.S. 30-year bonds were at 1.536%,
down from 1.567% on Monday. Earlier, 30-year yields climbed to a
four-month peak of 1.61%.
