WASHINGTON -- A weakening dollar yesterday prompted Treasury notes and bonds to lose most of Tuesday's gains, analysts said, while the very short end of the yield curve rallied.

Late yesterday, the long bond was quoted down 22/32 --exactly what it gained Tuesday -- at a price of 96 1/8, pushing the yield up six basis points to 7.83%. The 10-year note lost 11 of the 15 ticks it gained the previous day, ending yesterday at 100 15/32, where the yield was 7.80%.
