U.S. government debt prices were lower Tuesday as traders monitored U.S.-China trade developments.
Market players are focused on U.S.-China trade developments with mixed messages on the progress of talks between Washington and Beijing over the last few days. Sources told CNBC Monday that U.S.-China trade negotiations are in the "final stages" and that a summit in Mar-a-Lago later this month could close the deal.
The New York Times also said in a report that Monday the trade deal being discussed would do little to address key structural issues. These include efforts by the Chinese to curb cybertheft and subsidies that the Trump administration argues make it harder for U.S. companies to do business in China.
Meanwhile, the Commerce Department said Monday that construction spending dropped 0.6 percent in December. Economists polled by Refinitiv had forecast a gain of 0.2 percent.
