US Treasurys edge lower as bond investors digest data


U.S. government debt prices were mostly lower on Friday, as investors parsed through economic data on the last day of June.

The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note sat slightly higher at around 2.296 percent at 3:12 p.m. ET, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond was up at 2.836 percent. Bond yields move inversely to prices.


With Friday marking the last trading day of the quarter this is usually seen as a time when investors reposition their portfolios or take profits.

Investors also looked to more data releases, with personal income rising 0.4 percent in May, more than the expected gains of 0.3 percent. The Chicago PMI manufacturing adjusted June index came in at 65.7, above May's 59.4.

Consumer sentiment, meanwhile, hit 95.1 in June, more than the expected 94.5.

In the political sphere, U.S. President Donald Trump continued with his meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the White House.

No auctions are expected to take place on Friday.
