In contrast, the benchmark 10-year Treasury note was down 20/32, its yield rising to 2.35 percent from 2.28 percent late on Thursday.

On Thursday the government reported another drop in new US jobless claims. Data released on Friday showed a smaller-than-forecast 0.1 percent rise in consumer prices excluding food and energy items and a 0.4 percent rise with those items included. ...

Before this afternoon's $21 ...

Canada 2-yr bond sale helped by Europe fears  TORONTO: Canada's sale of two-year government bonds generated strong demand on Wednesday, helped by fears about the global economic outlook, even as the average yield climbed from the multi-year low seen at December's auction.
