U.S. government debt yields were mixed on Friday, as investors pored over a new batch of economic data, while digesting the latest geopolitical news.
The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note rose to 2.204 percent at 3:33 p.m. ET, while the yield on the 30-year Treasury bond ticked lower to 2.772 percent. Bond yields move inversely to prices.
On the data front, U.S. retail sales unexpectedly fell in August as Hurricane Harvey likely depressed car sales. Retail sales fell 0.2 percent in August, versus a 0.1 percent increase expected, according to Reuters.
Harvey is also being blamed for U.S. industrial output's fall in August, marking the first decline since January. Overall industrial production fell 0.9 percent over the month after a July increase revised upward to 0.4 percent.
The Fed, using a combination of high-frequency plant output data and economic modeling, attributed about 0.75 percentage point of the decline to storm effects, said Reuters.
