Treasuries See U.S. Falling Over Cliff as Yields Converge


Bloomberg reported that while the economy is creating jobs, housing prices are recovering and consumer confidence is the highest in five years, bond investors are seeking safety from a possible downturn next year.

Bloomberg notes that yields dropped to a two-month low on the prospect of a divided Congress stalling any budget deal and impeding the recovery from the worst recession since the Great Depression.
