WASHINGTON -- A stronger-than-expected home sales report pushed Treasury security prices lower yesterday, with the short end giving up more than the long end -- which has been the market's habit lately.

The long bond was quoted down 7/32 late yesterday at a price of 95 3/32 with a yield of 7.93%. The 10-year note moved in tandem, losing six ticks at 100 7/32 with a 7.84% yield.
