The Treasury market jumped ahead almost 1 1/8 points yesterday on the force of sheer buying power from most sectors of the market.

Traders reported such strong demand that dealers were "lifted out of their positions," or actually caught with fewer bonds to sell than clamored for by buyers. The bellwether 30-year bond closed the day 1 5/32 higher, to yield 8.05%, the lowest yield since the 8.04% of Feb. 25.
