There are four periods in any year that are bearish for US notes. These periods are in March, June, September, and in December. This applies to both US notes and to bonds. The same effect can be observed in Japan and in Europe.
Below, we see the annual average price behavior in the month of June since 1982 for the ten-year note. The bearish period in the next week stands out. From June 16 to 27, price has fallen about 74% of the time. In fact, Monday, the 20th has brought lower prices over 80% of the time.
