U.S. government debt yields rose Monday as investors looked ahead to a widely-anticipated meeting between U.S. and Chinese trade officials later this week. At around 9:45 a.m. ET, the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note was higher at around 2.657 percent, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was also higher at 2.998 percent. Axios reported on Sunday , citing two administration officials, that President Donald Trump's advisors have discussed holding a casual summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping next month at Mar-a-Lago, Trump's private club in Florida.
