This may be a very naive question, but here it goes anyway. Everyday when I wake up and watch "Squawk Box" I see the 30 year bond yeilds and periodically the price as well. I understand how to calculate a price, but what I want to know is what 30 year bond are they referencing for their reported yield and price? Are those bonds issued weekly, monthly, etc?

Thanks in advance for what I am sure will be an informative answer.

They are referring to the 30 year bonds offered by the US Treasury department. They are auctioned quarterly in February, May, August and November in denominations of $1000. You can buy bonds at auction by setting up an account through Treasury Direct.
Best wishes, Chris

Just to follow up on the previous reply, the squawk box quote is the yield on the most recently auctioned 30-yield T-Bond. For instance, if the last bond auctioned was in XX month, they will refer to that bond until XX+3 when the next auction takes place.
