March retail sales grew 0.9 percent, which was the best gain in a year but still weaker than forecast.
Yields on 10-year US Treasurys dropped to 1.8561 percent after the data were released, while 30-year bond yields dropped to 2.4926 percent. Both yields last traded at 1.8952 percent and 2.5402 percent, respectively.
Two-year note yields also sank from 0.54 percent to 0.4960 percent during Tuesday's session, before edging up to 0.5040 percent.
