U.S. sovereign bonds rose on Tuesday after the release of two U.S. economic data points as investors looked for clues on when the Federal Reserve would raise interest rates.
U.S. retail sales declined 0.3 percent in June, while economists expected a 0.2 percent rise. Meanwhile, U.S. import prices fell 0.1 percent last month, according to the Labor Department.
The 10-year Treasury yield traded around 2.41 percent after trading slightly higher at 2.4301 percent ahead of the releases. The yield on 30-year bonds declined 4 basis points to 3.20 percent. When a bond yield falls, its price rises.
