U.S. government debt prices were mixed on Friday as investors digested key inflation data.

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note, which moves inversely to its price, sat lower at 1.6875 percent, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was also lower, at 2.4396 percent. The two-year note yield, however, traded higher at 0.7702 percent.

The U.S. Consumer Price Index rose 0.2 percent in August, more than the expected increase of 0.1 percent. Markets will focus on what the data means for the Fed, but any action at its meeting next week has largely been written off.

Other data released Friday included the September consumer sentiment read, which came in below the expected 90.8.

In oil markets, Brent crude traded at $45.98 a barrel on Friday, while U.S. crude was around $43.28 a barrel.
