[$$] U.S. Government Bonds Fall Amid Auction

U.S. government bond prices fell Tuesday amid signs that risk sentiment is improving while the Treasury Department completed the first of three auctions this week. Yields, which rise when bond prices decline, climbed as the Treasury sold $38 billion of three-year notes. The auction, which met with modest demand, was the first of three offerings this week totaling $78 billion—a 39% increase from the same series of auctions last year.
