Treasuries fall after mixed US economic data

NEW YORK, April 3 (Reuters) - U.S. government debt prices fell on Monday as a mixed bag of economic data reinforced expectations the Fed could raise interest rates at least once more.
The benchmark 10-year Treasury note's yield rose above 4.90 percent to a near four-year high on Monday as bond investors bet on the Fed and other global central banks tightening interest rates against a backdrop of fairly robust global economic growth, analysts said.
"The Treasury market is lower today under pressure from a sell-off in Japanese government bonds (JGBs) overnight and because of strong euro zone data that came out this morning," said William O'Donnell, a strategist at UBS.
"Strengthening economies in Japan and Europe, combined with the threat of further rate hikes from the Federal Reserve has investors anticipating higher rates and acting defensively,"
O'Donnell said.

For those hoping for an interest rate respite deliverance remains afar off.
