U.S. Treasurys were mostly flat on Friday at the end of a week of steady price gains fueled by increasing worries that economic growth in the U.S. may be slower than policymakers believe.
A better-than-expected consumer sentiment report earlier in the morning saw long-term maturity Treasury yields rise slightly from three-week lows touched on Thursday. Yesterday's dip came after fixed-income investors were surprised by earlier data showing the U.S. economy contracted more than previously thought in the first quarter.
Yields on 30-year Treasurys last traded to yield 3.37 percent, down 8/32 in price, after falling lower than 3.34 percent earlier.
Benchmark 10-year notes dropped 1/32 in price to yield 2.54 percent, after hitting a low of less than 2.51 percent.
