US bond prices rise as retail sales disappoint NEW YORK: US Treasury debt prices rose Monday as weaker-than-forecast retail sales growth led to expectations of disappointing second-quarter economic growth and raised bets the Federal Reserve might stick its current rate of bond-purchase stimulus.The US government said on Monday retail sales increased 0.4 percent last month, half of the rise economists polled by Reuters had forecast. The slowdown led Wall Street to now expect the economy likely expanded at a meager 1 percent clip in the second quarter.Signs of the consumer sector faltering might be a roadblock on the US central bank's path to begin scaling back its $85 billion monthly purchases of Treasuries and mortgage-backed securities, its third round of quantitative easing known as QE3."The retail sales numbers were not very good. People are revising down their GDP outlook. It's going to be difficult for the Fed to taper," said Brian Edmonds, head of rates trading at Cantor ...

US bonds gain on safety bid as ADP data disappoint NEW YORK: US Treasuries prices rose on Wednesday as weak economic data spurred safe-haven bids, with investors waiting for government payroll numbers later in the week to help clarify whether the Fed could soon pause its massive stimulus program.A report by payrolls processor ADP showed US private employers added 135,000 jobs in May, less than the 165,000 expected in a Reuters poll.Bond prices rose on the ADP news and again when service-sector data from the ...
