U.S. Treasury prices pared early gains Wednesday in quiet activity with the 10-year leading but prices are overall little-changed. The market remains cautious as geopolitical risks continue to pop-up and/or escalate. The market is looking with caution to the final auction in the holiday-shortened week, with the $12 billion reopened 30-year results due at 1 p.m. ET. Traders are eyeing equities, the yen and energy markets for minor directional guidance with little else to play against.
