STIMULUS IN ACTION: The Fed bought $7.8 billion in Treasurys, part of its $600 billion effort to spur the economy. Before the purchase, the 10-year yield reached 3.36 percent, its highest level in six months.

10-YEAR TRADING: The 10-year Treasury note rose 31.2 cents. That nudged the yield down to 3.28 percent from 3.33 percent.

FED MEETS: When the Fed meets Tuesday, investors will be watching to see if the central bank alters its bond-buying program. A proposal to extend Bush-era tax cuts and unemployment benefits is expected to boost economic growth next year. If passed, it would take pressure off the Fed.
