NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- Treasury prices fell Monday, sending yields higher as investors look for signs of whether the economy is accelerating.

The 10-year Treasury note yield climbed 2 basis points to 2.643%, while the 30-year bond yield rose 1.5 basis points to 3.480%, and the 5-year note yield rose 2.5 basis points to 1.650%.
