U.S. government debt prices were higher on Tuesday morning as investors monitored stimulus discussions and awaited the first debate ahead of the U.S. presidential election.

At around 2:20 a.m. ET, the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note dropped 1.04% to trade at 0.6561%. In the meantime, the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond fell by 0.57% to trade at 1.4149%. Yields move inversely to prices.

President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden will participate in a televised debate tonight — the first before U.S. voters head to the polls in November.
