WASHINGTON -- Fears of a sliding dollar kept the long end of the Treasury securities market in a modest funk yesterday, analysts said. The dollar tested new lows against the Japanese yen in the morning, but regained most of what it lost by late afternoon, trading at 97.35 yen.

Late yesterday, the 30-year bond was quoted down #37/32 at a price of 95 15/32 with a 7.89% yield, up two basis points from the previous day's close. The 10-year note lost 8/32 to a 97 1/32 price and a yield of 7.68%.
